As protestors around the globe carry out localised off-shoots of the anti-capitalist ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement, the Metropolitan Opera presents SATYAGRAHA – a production chronicling the life of the man who championed the philosophy of non-violent resistance, Mahatma Gandhi.
SATYAGRAHA, featuring songs sung in ancient Sanskrit, with the libretto drawn from the holy Bhagavad Gita scripture, screens in 30 cinemas around New Zealand for a limited season from 15 December.
Philip Glass’s opera, one of the most modern works in the Met repertory, tells the moving story of Gandhi’s early life in South Africa, when he formed his revolutionary philosophy of pacifism to fight racism.
Performers Richard Croft, Rachelle Durkin, and Alfred Walker and conductor Dante Anzolini, reprise their performances from the opera’s 2008 Met premiere, which were met with extraordinary critical acclaim.
