Einstein on the Beach
PREMIERE7/25/1976 — Festival d'Avignon
COMPOSERPhilip Glass   
LIBRETTISTSChristopher Knowles   Lucinda Childs   Samuel M. Johnson   
 
Synopsis
The first in Glass' trilogy of operas about men who changed the world through the power of their ideas, Einstein's sub-text is science. The opera is non-narrative in form, and the producer has two options: to reproduce the original Robert Wilson production (which exists on videotape), or to create a new series of stage and dance pictures based on themes relating to the life of Albert Einstein. The opera is structured in four 'acts' connected by 'knee plays', or intermezzi.
