Play • 1 hr 59 min
Thirty-three centuries ago, a doomed visionary Pharaoh tried to remake the world in honor of his god.  Thirty-five years ago, a brilliant composer created a powerful opera that explored the wonder and the tragedy of that ancient dreamer.  Philip Glass's Akhnaten combines modern music with a libretto in ancient languages to break through the centuries and tell a timeless tale.
Hosted by Pat and guest co-host Grant.
