Hear the story of this revolutionary young pharaoh, whose incredible contributions to history and the arts were erased from the world’s memory for 3,000 years. Rediscovered in all his glory and mystery only 100 years ago, Akhnaten is the title character of Philip Glass’ mesmerizing 1980 opera.

This talk is part one of a trilogy of opera talks wherein Ray Busmann tells us the fascinating stories of some game-changing personalities in history that he (and probably we all) would never have heard about if it weren’t for opera.
