The Boston Conservatory Opera, Sanford Sylvan Director, Presents Phillip Glass's Akhnaten Feb. 3-5, 2005



BOSTON, MA. (ASHMONT MEDIA/ www.bostonconservatory.edu) - Phillip Glass's haunting three-act opera Akhnaten (1984) is the first production of the new Boston Conservatory Opera under the direction of Sanford Sylvan. Akhnaten will be performed Feb. 3- 5, 2005, at 8:00 p.m. at The Boston Conservatory Theater, 31 Hemenway St., Boston. Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for seniors, and $5 for students. Box Office: 617-912-9222.

Akhnaten completed Glass's trilogy of 'portrait' operas that began with Einstein on the Beach, and Satyagraha. In these operas, Glass sought to portray three men (Einstein, Gandhi, and Akhnaten) who revolutionized the ideas of their respective times. The short-lived religious revolution of Akhnaten, a renegade pharaoh who introduced monotheism and monogamy to ancient Egypt, provides the story for Glass's avant-garde work.

Up next for the Boston Conservatory Opera is Benjamin Britten's Albert Herring Mar. 31 - Apr. 2, 2005.

The Boston Conservatory trains exceptional young performing artists for careers that enrich and transform the human experience. Known for its intimate and supportive multi-disciplinary environment, the Conservatory offers fully accredited graduate and undergraduate programs in Music, Dance, Theater, and Music Education, and presents over 200 performances each year by students, faculty, and guest artists.
Since its founding in 1867, The Boston Conservatory has shared its talent and creativity with the city of Boston, the region, and the nation, and continues to grow today as a vibrant community of artists and educators.
