PHILIP GLASS

Einstein on the Beach, concert performance of the opera

 

Suzanne Vega narrator

Collegium Vocale Gent

Ictus Ensemble

 

The opera will last four hours, the hall will be open and guests will be would come and go. We open the hall at 6 pm.

 

Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass was premiered in 1976. The piece is written for choir and amplified ensemble, a hybrid formula between chamber ensemble and a pop band. This concert version of Einstein on the Beach is a collaboration between Suzanne Vega, Ictus Ensemble, Collegium Vocale Gent and the visual artist Germaine Kruip. It presents a sheer musical approach to the full score of the legendary Glass/Wilson opera, in which the virtuosic instrumental, singing parts and crystalline structure of the piece are enhanced by a site-specific approach and a sophisticated sound design.
