(Right click and "Save As")
As a special addition to the season, LA Opera presents a rare revival of the groundbreaking 1976 collaboration by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass. Universally hailed as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century, Einstein on the Beach breaks all rules of conventional opera. Non-narrative in form, the work uses a series of powerful recurrent images as its main dramatic device shown in juxtaposition with abstract dance sequences created by Lucinda Childs. Brian Lauritzen hosts this special edition of "LA Opera: Behind The Curtain" featuring interviews with Philip Glass, Robert Wilson and Lucinda Childs.
