UPDATE: Philip Glass emerged from the Met tonight to read to the General Assembly (via mic check) the final lines from Satyagraha: “When righteousness/ Withers away/ And evil / Rules the Land /We come into being /Age after age/ And take visible shape /And move / A man among men/ For the protection/ Of good /Thrusting back evil /And setting virtue/ On her seat again.” Video of this speech (via The Rest is Noise) after the jump.

Seth Colter Walls tweets: “Philip Glass makes it back inside the Met after his #OWS speech to some extra-loud applause from me for his inside-outside game.”

Earlier: Alex Ross reports: “The entire plaza has been closed. No sign yet of the composer of Satyagraha.” “The police just asked me to leave Lincoln Center Plaza.” [via Twitter]
