“One maker of all existences”

PHILIP GLASS

AKHNATEN

HER MAJESTYS THEATRE

5 Aug – 19 Aug 2014

Just as Akhnaten immersed himself in the white light of the Ten to exclusion of other deities, so we find ourselves immersed in the subtle hues of the key of A minor, with few excursions beyond it. Here, also, moments take ages. This is not a fast flight via modern down the Nile, taking in every reed, animal, bird, and undulating ripple along the way. The effect is both hypnotic and exhilarating.

This is a monumental achievement for State Opera SA, and for Warren in particular; it would be perfect as a festival piece and deserves all the accolades it has been given
