Philip Glass’s meditation on Gandhi’s early years in South Africa traces the progress of his concept of non-violent protest as a positive force for change. With a libretto assembled using text from the Bhagavad-Gita, sung in the original Sanskrit, the opera has no concrete plot, instead layering various historical vignettes, political statements, philosophical musings, and parables to form a meditative work that is as much manifesto as music or theater.
