Einstein on the Beach

An opera in four acts for ensemble, chorus and soloists (1976) 270'

Music by Philip Glass
Created with Robert Wilson

CAST:
2 female and 1 male actors; 1 child (speaking roles): SATB chamber chorus (16) amp S; fl (pic, bcl), fl (ssx), tsx (asx)/ 2syn

PREMIERE:
July 25, 1976 by the PGE at the Festival d'Avignon

NOTES:
First in a 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.
