Around three opera productions, Amarant organises a theme day that offers depth around the musical-dramatic content and historical backgrounds of the works.
Following his opera Einstein on the Beach (1978), in Satyagraha (1980) composer Philip Glass further explores the idea of an opera that transcends the boundaries of time and space and develops through a series of associative images. During a day around Glass's imposing opera, we not only examine the figure and teachings of the Indian activist and politician Mahatma Gandhi, but also focus on the score and the intriguing production of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Your guides throughout the day are Valerie Delaey and dramaturg Koen Bollen.
