Satyagraha

SatyagrahaWhen I recently saw the poster for Philip Glass’ Satyagraha, I had no clue that the opera had been composed in 1980. With the Metropolitan Opera now trying to reach out to a younger crowd, posters that would be saved for the newest indie pop record was plastered in the Lower East Side on a phone booth.

I’m really freaking glad I saw it. Tickets are pretty expensive, but if you look closely, they have standing room only space that sells for as little as $15.

I’m so IN for peace. And so IN for Philip Glass. By the by, the image to the right is not the poster I saw. The poster I saw had the background image of Gandhi and a foreground filled with yellow letters exclaiming something along the lines of “what if an opera led you to non-violence” or something like this.
