Einstein on the Beach in South Korea

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

First performed in 1976 <Einstein on the Beach> breaks all rules of convention: instead of a traditional orchestral arrangement, Philip Glass has composed his non-narrative opera for synthesizers, woodwinds and voices. Instead of narration, Robert Wilson’s stage craft focuses on a series of powerful recurrent images, shown in juxtaposition with abstract dance sequences choreographed by Lucinda Childs.
