Phillip Glass’ AKHNATEN

Ongoing right now, Met Opera’s revival of Phillip Glass’ Akhnaten should be a hot ticket in town.

That’s because Counter Tenor Anthony Roth Costanzo has full frontal nudity about 5 minutes when he enters the stage.

From the press release:

Philip Glass’s mesmerizing modern masterpiece—a smash-hit in its 2019 company-premiere run—returns in Phelim McDermott’s unforgettable production, which brings ancient Egypt to vivid life with striking stage tableaux and a troupe of jugglers. Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo reprises his celebrated turn as the revolutionary pharaoh Akhnaten, with mezzo-soprano Rihab Chaieb as his wife and queen, Nefertiti. Once again at the helm is conductor Karen Kamensek, a noted master of Glass’s music.


All audience members must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and wear face masks at all times inside the Met, except when eating or drinking in designated areas. For more information on health and safety policies, visit our commitment page.


Content Advisory: Akhnaten contains momentary full-frontal nudity.

It is playing until June 10!

  1. I didn’t see this – wish I did – but hubby did. He said Costanzo is quite the piece of eye candy. Don’t forget your opera glasses !!!

  2. Saw this a couple years ago when it first came to the Met. Costanzo has a nice size, cut cock. Riveting to see. Kudos to Costanzo for doing it. The whole opera was mesmerizing.
