The Perfect American imagines the final years of Walt Disney’s life, including mythical imaginings of Abraham Lincoln and Andy Warhol. In Part 1 the composer will discuss this groundbreaking new work and will be joined by ENO Artistic Director John Berry and members of the production team. The opera is directed by Phelim McDermott, designed by Dan Potra and with video design by 59 Ltd. Chaired by Clemency Burton Hill. In Part 2 Philip Glass will give a solo piano recital featuring music from his classic repertoire.
