1 Have You Been Here Before 2 No This Is The First Time / New York

  • The Cooper Union / Great Hall 7 East 7th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

In an exceptional performance of two hours, director and artist Robert Wilson invites us into his astonishing aesthetic universe. Combining hundreds of striking images from 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 question-and-answer period.
