A huge success at its London premiere in 2007 and at the Metropolitan Opera, New York, the following year, Philip Glass's operatic masterpiece returns to ENO. Satyagraha is a mesmerising musical meditation on Mahatma Gandhi's early years in South Africa and his spiritual progress towards the concept of nonviolent protest.

Performances: 20th Nov-8th Dec

One of the most visually spectacular productions of recent decades, Satyagraha is instilled with theatrical flair by the award-winning director designer partnership of Improbable's Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch.

Returning to the roles they created in 2007 and reprised in 2009 are Alan Oke as Gandhi and Janis Kelly as Mrs Naidoo. Satyagraha is conducted by Stuart Stratford.

A collaboration with Improbable. Co-produced by ENO and the Metropolitan Opera, New York
