  • As part of the English National Opera's 2022/23 season, AKHNATEN is coming to the London Coliseum for a limited time only.

    Behold, the power of the Pharaoh.

    A mesmerising spectacle, AKHNATEN tells the story of one of the world’s most influential figures – the Pharaoh Akhnaten, the first Pharaoh to switch from worshipping a pantheon of gods to just one: the Sun.

    Phelim McDermott’s Olivier Award-winning production of Philip Glass’s AKHNATEN is a mesmerising work whose text draws on ancient hymns, prayers and inscriptions sung in their original Egyptian, Hebrew and Akkadian. The opera’s unique mood transports audiences to this ancient world through Glass’s music (conducted by the returning Karen Kamensek) that combines his characteristic minimalist voice with stylised movement and choreographed juggling to visualise the rhythms of his score.

    Award-winning countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo returns to the title role, alongside Chrystal E. Williams as Nefertiti, Haegee Lee as Queen Tye, Keel Watson returning to the role of Aye and Zachary James returning to the role of Scribe.

    Co-production with LA Opera. Collaboration with Improbable.

    The true sun god returns to the London Coliseum – book your AKHNATEN theatre tickets today!
