Inspired by the opera Einstein on the Beach, originally created in 1976 by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass, Mr. Wilson has selected five teams of artists to re-interpret sections of the seminal work.
Four scenes and the Knee Plays (short pieces presented between and connecting the four acts of Einstein on the Beach) are the sources of inspiration for these new works. On The Beach celebrates a new generation of artists and their reactions to an opera that is widely recognized as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century.
