Thu 20th Feb:

Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s modern masterpieces, with star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo as the revolutionary title ruler who transformed ancient Egypt—in cinemas November 23. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott offers an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts. This live cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to more than 2,200 theaters in more than 70 countries worldwide.

*Please Note: There are no subtitles displayed during the performance. It does feature scene headings and descriptive text in between each song/scene. This is an artistic choice made by the Met Opera for this production.*
