About Met Opera: Satyagraha

The idea for Philip Glass’s Satyagraha is deceptively simple: depict Gandhi’s formative years in South Africa (1893–1914) when he mobilized the oppressed Indian minority and developed the nonviolent civil disobedience movement known as “satyagraha” (Sanskrit for “truth force”). But the opera, which unfolds in seven pivotal scenes, is anything but a straightforward recounting of historic events. Unlike a traditional narrative, the story unfolds seemingly out of time, with a structural framework in which past, present, and future converge.
