Philip Glass's Satyagraha, a sold-out sensation when it had its Met premiere in 2008, tells the story of Gandhi's early years in South Africa, where he developed his philosophy of non-violence. The Met's breathtaking production, which critics have called "a work of genius" (Los Angeles Times) and "a transcendent evening of theater" (Variety) returns this November.
