Philip Glass’ Akhnaten by Opéra de Nice

My thanks to music critic and dear friend Theodore Bale for dropping me a note about this fascinating production of Philip Glass’ Akhnaten, available on youtube here (I think for a limited time). It is directed and choreographed by Lucinda Childs, who also choreographed Einstein on the Beach. Among the many warm and wonderful things about escaping in this production, it also stands as a remarkable testament of what humanity has managed to produce during a pandemic.

  1. Very cool! Hope you’re well, Sydney! I enjoyed your piece about poetry animals too, though my answers were so scattered that it wasn’t clear which one I am. If I could just pick one I’d be the Thought-Fox in Ted Hughes’ poem… or maybe the Fish in Elizabeth Bishop’s?

    Happy holidays! Jeremy
