For those who love Philip Glass's minimalist music, it's an amazing musical and spiritual journey
that goes into the meditative mind of Mohandas Ghandi as he develops his philosophy and practice of non violent resistance to social injustice. Leo Tolstoy, Indian poet Tagore and Dr. Martin Luther King each oversee one of the three acts.
It's a very unusual opera. Sung in Sanscrit, a language that hasn't been spoken for thousands of years and nobody really knows how it sounds. The libretto is a translation of the sacred Hindu text Bhagavad Gita and has no real relation to the singers' actions or astounding visuals using puppets and multimedia. Subtitles are very rarely used. The beautiful voices melt into mantra. Visuals tell what there is of story.
Incomprehensible to the mind. All one can do is surrender to the mediation and feel gloriously happy at the end of the experience. Be sure to stay for interviews at the intermissions to help decipher what one is seeing. Namaste.
Presentation ran for 3 hours without an intermission. Very hard on audience.
