I didn’t write about it here but I saw Akhnaten in the Met Opera simulcast back in November and it was incredible: A countertenor, a dozen jugglers, everyone moving in slow motion while singing “ah.” These things don’t sound like they would add up to anything other than “weird” but it was deeply moving and amazing to see.

I just found (via Kottke) this short video from Vox about how the production came together. I love behind-the-scenes/rehearsal footage so it’s right up my alley, but it also gives you a little peek at the costumes and some of the choreography.
