Synopsis

Lucinda Childs (choreographer)





This seminal work of avant-garde opera from composer Philip Glass and director Robert Wilson arrives full-circle, coming o France, the site of its 1976 Avignon Festival world premiere, at the tail end of this 2014 revival tour for a landmark Theâtre du Châtelet production and a first ever filming by award-winning arts filmmaker Don Kent. Eschewing onventional narrative, the opera revolves loosely around pacifist Einstein’s relationship to the creation of the atomic bomb. In continuity with the opera’s debut, for this new production, hailed by Le Figaro as ‘meticulously crafted total artwork in which the visual and musical craft are inseparable’, the music is again performed by the Philip Glass Ensemble and the choreography devised by original cast member Lucinda Childs for her Lucinda Childs Dance Company, with the scenes taking place under Bob Wilson’s own digitally remastered light design.

Customer Reviews

This is the first of the trilogy. I have CDs for the other 2 and have seen a live performance of Satyagraha. "Einstein" is in the minimalist era. Watching this lengthy opera requires your appreciation of "early" Glass otherwise you might not enjoy. The 2 disc dvd ( I have a dvd- not blu ray though) is accompanied by a book and pictograms which detail the act and scene numbers- very useful. The recording quality is reasonable, not brilliant. If you are a Glass fan you will enjoy. Not the best work to start out with if you want to fully appreciate Glass.
