Morgan Library & Museum exhibits Philip Glass’s autograph score for Einstein on the Beach

From July 13, The Morgan Library & Museum will exhibit for the first time Glass’s autograph score for Einstein on the Beach as well as Wilson’s production storyboards totaling more than one hundred designs. It is the first time the score has been exhibited and the first time it has been united with Wilson’s work since the opera premiered more than thirty-five years ago. Robert Wilson/Philip Glass: Einstein on the Beach will run through November 4.

The exhibition will also include archival film of the premieres in Brussels and Paris, as well as an excerpt from a New York rehearsal. In addition, Einstein on the Beach: The Changing Image of Opera, a documentary about the 1984 restaging of the production at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, will be screened throughout the run of the exhibition in the Morgan’s Gilder Lehrman Hall. Combining clips and interviews with Wilson and Glass, the film offers a rare look at their creative process and collaborative working method.

The Morgan Library & Museum 225 Madison Avenue, at 36th Street, New York, NY 10016-3405 212.685.0008
