Widely credited as one of the greatest artistic achievements of the 20th century, the rarely performed avant-garde opera Einstein on the Beach revolutionized theater, dance and performance. Its legendary, pioneering creators, director Robert Wilson and composer Philip Glass, discuss the initial imagining of this groundbreaking collaboration, the creative process and its trajectory. The conversation will be led by Anne Bogart, the Artistic Director of the New York-based SITI Company and a renowned theater director in her own right.
