I was lucky enough to see this production at the ENO in 2016. I was new to Philip Glass and unsure what to expect. It was an utterly absorbing spectacle. It is very rare that I will see the same production twice but I went back for the revival in 2019. I'm excited to see it on DVD and expect to revisit it many times.
