Einstein on the Beach was a seminal work of opera that broke all the rules, being non-linear, non-narrative, episodic, dreamlike and five hours long. A collaborative creation between Glass and theatrical director Robert Wilson, it was described by one critic as ‘a mixture of mathematical clarity and mystical allure’. The subject of the play is the life of Albert Einstein. The subject of this book is the complete libretto, as well as a description of the creation of the work, biographies, discographies, lists of works photographs and complete credits for the original work. For any admirer of Philip Glass, Robert Wilson or modern opera, this book is a necessity. American composer Philip Glass is widely known as one of the most celebrated, influential and prolific of the modern composers. He is frequently referred to as a minimalist, though he prefers to call himself a composer of ‘music with repetitive structures.’ His operas, including the renowned Einstein On The Beach, are performed across the globe, and he has created work for small and large ensembles, film and experimental theatre, and founded his own performing group, The Philip Glass Ensemble.
