Satyagraha in HD

The picture shows Richard Croft, Alfred Walker, Rachelle Durkin, the Metropolitan Opera chorus, their shoes lined up along the apron and their coats flying in the air.

I went to the theater and sat in the chair for one act of the rerun of Satyagraha from the Metropolitan Opera.  I was very tired and struggling with falling asleep, so I went home.  I am reminded again that it is the most spiritual of all operas.  A film showing the real Ghandi ran in the intermission.  Eric Owens was the host.

I saw this production live in New York in 2008, so you should read my full review there.  Other comments on Glass can be found here, here and here.
