Notes & Reviews:

Philip Glass' socio-political opera 'Waiting for the Barbarians' (2005) is set to a laconic libretto by Christopher Hampton, based on the 1980 novel by South African Nobel laureate J.M. Coetzee. A triumph at its German premiere, the opera was conceived by Glass as "a harrowing allegory of the war between oppressors and the oppressed," dramatizing the universal themes of confrontation, crisis and redemption.
