The opera also includes Akhenaten’s son Tutankhamun and his wife Nefertiti.
Akhnaten’s is the last part of Glass’s trilogy of ’potrait’ operas and each part has its focus on a different theme. Its libretto is a collaborative effort of Shalom Goldman, Robert Israel, Jerome Robbins and Richard Riddell.The inspiration was taken from Freud’s Moses and Monotheism and Velikovsky’s Oedipus and Akhnaton. The opera’s libretto is different than the conventional ones; it narrates the story of the Pharoah through a series of tableaux. Akhnaten is a masterpiece which captures the spirit of the old days and brings it to live. The orchestration of the opera is also unusual; there is no violin which creates a mournful and dark aura.
