WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Philip Glass's landmark 1980 work, set to text from the ancient Sanskrit scripture the Bhagavad Gita, is a moving account of Mahatma Gandhi's formative experiences in South Africa, which transformed him into a great leader. For the opera's Met premiere, director Phelim McDermott and designer Julian Crouch (artistic directors of London's provocative Improbable theater company) use adventurous, improvisational puppetry, achieved by the Skills Ensemble, a brilliant team of aerialists, to illuminate this formative period in Gandhi's life and work.
