In the first of two concerts dedicated to the music of the legend in his lifetime, the Philip Glass Ensemble, showcase his dazzling display of minimalism turned up to the max, Glassworks, and three of his mesmeric, ground-breaking operas.

The antique and the modern brilliantly collide in hypnotic portraits of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, Akhnaten, Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘truth force’, Satyagraha, and The Photographer Eadweard Muybridge.
