© Einstein on the BeachThe Barbican Centre brings director Robert Wilson and composer Philip Glass’s legendary ‘Einstein on the Beach’ to UK on May 4-13 2012. This will be the first time the 5 hour opera, still recognised as a great masterpiece, is performed in 20 years (and its first UK appearance) and looks set to be a once in a lifetime show. With choreography from Lucinda Childs, this is no conventional opera: split into 4 acts with no interval (don’t worry about toilet breaks, you can come and go as you please), this abstract, contemporary piece is set to be epic.
