“Open are the double doors of the horizon, unlocked are its bolts.” Bass Zachary James models his brand-new tattoo of the winged sun featured in the Philip Glass Akhnaten scenic design by Tom Pye.

Zachary’s tattoo is by Kyle Fitzpatrick of Philadelphia Eddies Tattoo. The bass stars as Amenhotep III in the Metropolitan Opera’s company premiere of Akhnaten on November 8.
