Standing ovation for Glass's new operaThe audience at Germany's Erfurt Theatre treated Philip Glass to a 15 minute standing ovation at the premiere of his new opera "Waiting for the Barbarians".
The opera explores the way modern day white society is coming to terms with its exploitative and repressive past.
Glass previously said he saw the opera as a critique of President Bush's administration and its war against Iraq.
The opera is scheduled for Amsterdam next spring and Austin Texas in 2007.
