  • Philip Glass, Robert Wilson's "Einstein on the Beach" Returns to NYC with Eight Performances at BAM

    Philip Glass and Robert Wilson's Einstein on the Beach, widely credited as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century, launched its creators to international success when it was first produced in Avignon, France, in 1976. Now, 20 years since its last production, as part of an international tour, Einstein on the Beach returns to New York with eight performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), tonight through September 23.

About this Album

Glass contributes the score to the 1996 adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novel by Oscar-winning writer-director Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons). "Mining a mysterious, darkly lyrical vein," says Billboard, "Glass has fashioned for the soundtrack some of his most alluring, involving music since his Violin Concerto."
