ENO’s production of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten. Photograph: Tristram Kenton/The Guardian. We created this production before Brexit and Trump, and the questions we began asking then have taken on a new potency. Was Akhnaten a brilliant visionary who transformed the world, or a glorified cult leader drunk on power? Did he unite his country with a singular focus, or divide it with extreme rhetoric? While I’ve come to believe that he was a transformative figure who tried to shape the world for the better – but on stage I like to keep the question open. And with the two composers echoing in my mind this last year, I was able to make an album that put them side by side. Once you learn to sing Glass’s music, you also have to learn how to remember it! I thought the opera’s ancient Egyptian text would be hard to master, but with enough careful translation and study, it proved surmountable.

Passages is a collaborative chamber music studio album co-composed by Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass, released in 1990 through Private Music.
