Akhnaten: Live at the Metropolitan Opera (LTNF LIVE 4 WERB RADIO)

Attending an opera premiere at the Metropolitan Opera is a big deal. When you add in that it is a Philip Glass opera, featuring a countertenor about a little know and highly important historical figure, a real Egyptian Pharoah of import, well then… it can become epic. Listen to Lester the Nightfly Live about the opera Akhnaten. Lots to learn. Lots to hear.

Author’s Note: Such a pleasure to go to this opera with Daniel, Victor, and Sunny. We shared something special!
