Throughout June, Sky Arts brings you some of the great minds taking part in Britain’s leading festival of ideas, the Hay Festival.

One esteemed guest at this year’s festival is composer Philip Glass. John Berry, artistic director of the English National Opera, joins the composer to discuss his latest opera The Perfect American. The work, based on Peter Stephan Jungk’s semi-fictional novel of the same name, focuses on the last years of Walt Disney’s life.
