Phillip’s use of repetitive musical structures creates a mesmerising soundscape

Satyagraha is composer Philip Glass’s meditation on Gandhi’s early years in South Africa, tracing the progress of his concept of non-violent protest as a positive force for change.

First staged in 2007, Phelim McDermott’s highly acclaimed, spectacularly theatrical production is a visual feast.

Glass’s use of repetitive musical structures ‘minimalism’creates a mesmerising soundscape, quite unlike traditional operas


Following the Olivier Award-winning run of Akhnaten in 2016, McDermott is reunited with Glass-specialist conductor Karen Kamensek. Distinguished British tenor Toby Spence sings Gandhi for the first time, and is joined by sopranos Charlotte Beament (Miss Schelesen) and Anna-Clare Monk (Mrs Naidoo).

See Satyagraha at the London Coliseum from 1 Feb – 27 Feb 2018
