4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Christophe R. Merville on March 21, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
John Richardson book explores every aspect of Philip Glass's Akhenaton: libretto, music, significance, archeology, etc.

Once I read that book, the opera I have known and listened to for more than 7 years became new again.

This book also puts Akhenaton into the perspective of the others main operas from Philip Glass.

An essential book about this opera and it's creator.
