Philip Glass’s 20th-century masterpiece is an inspirational retelling of Gandhi’s formative philosophical experiences as a young man in South Africa.
The minimalist score, sung in Sanskrit, features lyrics drawn from the Bhagavad Gita.
Phelim McDermott’s visually extravagant production uses large-scale puppetry, acrobatics, and supertitles to create a moving, life-affirming theatrical experience.
Richard Croft portrays Gandhi, a role he first sang to critical acclaim in the 2008 Met premiere of the work.
The cast also includes Rachelle Durkin as Miss Schlesen, Kim Josephson as Mr. Kallenbach, and Alfred Walker as Parsi Rustomji.
Contemporary music specialist Dante Anzolini conducts; rising bass-baritone star Eric Owens hosts the transmission.
