Satyagraha

Satyagraha tickets

London Coliseum

From £13.44 including all fees

With an idea, Gandhi founded a movement. With a movement, he created a nation. With a nation, he changed the course of history.

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). 

★★★★ 'A striking achievement on many levels' - The Guardian

★★★★ 'Enthralling' - The Financial Times
