Einstein on the Beach (Special Edition Art Book)

from 50.00

Known to be one of the most important artistic piece of the 20th century, EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH, an Opera in Four Acts, launched the international careers of Philip Glass and Robert Wilson. Its creation in 1976 during the Festival d’Avignon sent a shock through the music world. Decades later and twenty years after its last revival, the opera was remounted for an international tour that started in Montpellier in the spring of 2012.
This book focuses on the creation of this revolutionary opera through Robert Wilson’s sketchbook and storyboard. It shows how the opera was imagined first and how it gradually took shape, as we know it today. The facsimile of an original text by Philip Glass, wrote at the time, describes the musical score and the link it has to Wilson’s stageplay. Fourteen photographs of the four performances of the opera (1976, 1984, 1992, 2012) show the completion of this fruitful collaboration between the two artists.
This book also bears unpublished documents, a preface by Robert Wilson himself and allows the fans of EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH to discover more from behind the scenes and understand and appreciate the impact of this unique work.

There is a very limited number of books available which are signed by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson.
