This incredible opera, a one of a kind by a master composer, is based upon Mohandas K. Gandhi and can thus be considered a sort of tribute to the man who changed the world. Although this opera is labeled as minimalist, its music is hardly so; it is instead very rich and diverse, causing various emotions. The cast behind the opera is large and consists of two sopranos, two mezzo-sopranos, two tenors, one baritone, two basses and a big SATB chorus. The name itself is a reference to the basic Gandhi principle of non violent resistance, the basis for pacifist and peace movements worldwide. Satyagraha also includes pieces in Sanskrit from the Bhagavad Gita, making it even richer and reflective of Gandhi. Debuted in 1980, Satyagraha is today one of the most popular operas in its genres and a must see for fans of Gandhi, peace and quality opera via Satyagraha Tickets.
