An evening with Robert Wilson!

In an exceptional three-hour performance, director and artist Robert Wilson invites us into his astonishing aesthetic universe. Combining hundreds of striking images from through his prolific career, Wilson provides an intimate self-portrait of his creative process.
Mr. Wilson references his landmark original works for the stage such as Deafman Glance, A Letter for Queen Victoria, Einstein on the Beach (created with composer Philip Glass), The CIVIL warS, and The Black Rider, as well as his acclaimed work for the operatic and theatrical repertoire, including his luminous stagings of Madama Butterfly, Wagner’s Ring Cycle, The Magic Flute, Ibsen’s Peer Gynt and Heiner Mueller’s Quartett.  At the conclusion of the performance, the audience is invited to explore Mr. Wilson’s ideas further during an informal Q&A.

Robert Wilson returns to the Kunstfest Weimar, where he curated and designed Franz Liszt's "Via Crucis" in the 2012 Festival season.
