Synopsis

The opera explores the rise and fall of the Pharaoh, Akhnaten. Akhnaten's short-lived but world-shattering reign was marked by his imposition of a monotheistic religious tradition on society that lead to immediate upheaval in the realms of artistic expression, architecture and social mores.
