Live streamLive stream

Glass' 'Akhnaten' is an opera in three acts based on the life and religious convictions of the pharaoh Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV). The text, taken from original sources, is sung in the original languages, linked together with the commentary of a narrator in a modern language, such as English or German. Egyptian texts of the period are taken from a poem of Akhenaten himself, from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, and from extracts of decrees and letters from the Amarna period, the seventeen-year period of Akhenaten's rule. Performers:

Queen Tye: Dísella Lárusdóttir.
Nefertiti: J'Nai Bridges.
Akhnaten: Anthony Roth Costanzo.
High Priest of Amon: Aaron Blake.
Horemhab: Will Liverman.
Aye: Richard Bernstein.
Amenhotep III: Zachary James.

Metropolitan Opera Choir and Orchestra. Conductor: Karen Kamensek.
