Einstein on the Beach / Gwangju

  • Asia Culture Center - Asian Arts Theatre 38 Munhwajeondang-ro, Dong-gu Kwangju, 501-050 South Korea (map)

The 2012 revival of Philip Glass and Robert Wilson's Einstein on the Beach has been shown around the world. Now, after presentations in the US, France, Italy, the UK, Germany, Canada, China, Australia and others, the tour will receive its Grand Finale in Gwangju, South Korea. The new Asia Culture Center is presenting four performances of the opera in its inaugural season.

‘Einstein’ may be even more ahead of the theater of 2012 than that of the 1970s.

Without question among the most memorable theatrical experiences I’ve had in the past few years.
