Phelim McDermott's Olivier Award-winning production of Philip Glass's Akhnaten returns to the ENO.

This captivating opera pulls parts of its text from ancient hymns and the prayers and inscriptions sung in the original Hebrew, Egyptian and Akkadian. Allow the mood of the piece to take you on a journey back to the ancient world invoked by Glass’s score.

This mesmerising production tells the story of Akhnaten. A man who changed the world. He was the first Pharaoh to switch from worshipping a plethora of gods to only one: The Sun God Aten.

Renowned countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo reprises the titular role, alongside Chrystal E. Williams as Nefertiti and Haegee Lee as Queen Tye. Keel Watson returns as Aye and Zachary James returns as the Scribe. They are joined by Benson Wilson as Horemhab and Paul Curievici as High Priest of Amon. The cast is completed by Ellie Neate, Isabelle Peters, Ella Taylor, Felicity Buckland, Sinead O’Kelly and Lauren Young as Daughters 1-6.
