The Perfect American

The Perfect American

ENO presents the UK premiere of acclaimed composer Philip Glass’s most recent opera, The Perfect American. Already a huge hit in Madrid, this spectacular new staging is set to be one of the summer’s hottest tickets.

The Perfect American visualises the final years of Walt Disney’s life, including mythical imaginings of Abraham Lincoln and Andy Warhol. Director Phelim McDermott (Improbable), 2000 Olympic Games designer Dan Potra and Leo Warner of 59 Productions unite to bring to life this remarkable story using their own unique visual language and characters.

More information about The Perfect American can be found on the ENO website.
