Summary
  • "Einstein on the Beach was the first collaboration between Robert Wilson and Philip Glass. The work breaks almost all the rules of classic opera, including those governing the usual relationship between creators. ... With its non-narrative form, the work uses a series of powerful recurring images as its main dramatic through-line, accompanied by abstract dance sequences"--Booklet
  • Featuring The Philip Glass Ensemble with soloists Helga Davis, Kate Moran and Antoine Silverman, the modern opera conveys the story of Einstein's involvement in the development of the atomic bomb
