Thursday’s Something Else on Friday (Glass)
I don’t know if I’d heard any Glass yet so I thought I’d pick something off his catalog. Ancient Egypt and Rome (+ assorted Hellenistic kingdoms) = ftw! as far as I’m concerned. Mr. Monotheism Akhnaten was an interesting character all right. The opera is probably best enjoyed after a couple of [your poison of choice]. Alas, I’m rather past that. I think it could’ve been more inventive but talk about soothing classical music, especially The Coronation of Akhnaten.
