    Akhnaten is a modern opera by Philip Glass, first performed in 1984. It tells the story, through a minimalist and mesmerizing score, of the Egyptian pharaoh who is considered the first monotheist. Estelle follows the opera's lead, Anthony Roth Costanzo, through the various phases of rehearsal, from working with his vocal coach in a Manhattan apartment to taking the stage in a dress covered in doll heads, surrounded by jugglers.
