Connection of trends from different cultures takes great place in Philip Glass' creation and is one of the basic pillars to create opera art products. We can find some components of interculturality in opera trilogy of portraits by this composer. The components of Indian theatre Kathakali are the most expressive in this trilogy. Between the most expressive components of kathakali belong mudras (hands motion, body position), which is shown up in some trilogy performances of portraits, further character of narrator - speaker and some musical components, especially expressive using of expanded palette of drums. Of all three operas, components of kathakali are especially in opera Akhnaten and Satyagraha. From the view of musical arrangement there are noticeable expressive components apart from Europe, especially Indian influences, in Glass composition language. Primarily we can find these influences in metro rhythm diameter of creation of art product and also in all musical actions (music as meditation, music as a process, etc.)
