In 1976, Philip Glass, Robert Wilson and Lucinda Childs premiered their epic non-narrative operatic collaboration entitled Einstein on the Beach. It has since been hailed as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century. By shattering conventions of traditional opera, Einstein on the Beach heralded an era of new possibilities.
As part of our collaboration with LA Opera—who presents the work for the first time in Los Angeles in October of 2013—and in celebration of this momentous occasion, join CAP UCLA Artistic and Executive Director Kristy Edmunds for a freewheeling conversation with Wilson, Glass and Childs as they return to Royce Hall in honor of their groundbreaking work.
One of the most highly anticipated events of the LA Opera’s coming season, CAP UCLA will also cultivate additional opportunities for the UCLA campus and local arts communities to intersect with the creative passion and ideas behind this work.
