Einstein on the Beach

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

As a special addition to the season, LA Opera presents a rare revival of the groundbreaking 1976 collaboration by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass. Universally hailed as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century, Einstein on the Beach breaks all rules of conventional opera. Non-narrative in form, the work uses a series of powerful recurrent images as its main dramatic device shown in juxtaposition with abstract dance sequences created by Lucinda Childs. The Los Angeles performances will be the final North American stop of the production's international tour.

One of the most highly anticipated events of the coming season, Einstein is conceived on an epic scale. An episodic and exhilarating collage of dreamlike images arouses a childlike sense of wonder, making the strange familiar-and the familiar strange.
