You’re invited to join New Zealand Opera’s special fundraising screening of The Met’s Live in HD production of Akhnaten in Upper Hutt. Tickets are $30 per person and include a drink and nibbles. Arrive early for the opportunity to catch-up with other NZ Opera supporters.

Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s masterpieces, following the now-legendary Met staging of Satyagraha. Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the title pharaoh, the revolutionary ruler who transformed ancient Egypt, with the striking mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges in her Met debut as his wife, Nefertiti. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott has created an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers.
