André de Ridder conducts "Einstein On The Beach" at Theater Basel, an opera in four acts by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson.
Inspired by Albert Einstein, a musical masterpiece has been created here that breaks all the rules of opera and does not follow any linear narrative structure. The constantly rotating stage and a very individual audience inside experience follows a concept by Susanne Kennedy and Markus Selg.
"Einstein On The Beach" was created in cooperation with the Berliner Festspeiele and the Wiener Festwochen and celebrates its premiere today, Saturday 4 June, at the Theater Basel.
Further performances will follow in Basel on 06, 15, 16, 19, 21 and 22 June, as well as performances at the Wiener Festwochen on 10 and 11 June and at the Berliner Festspiele on 30 June and 2 and 3 July 2022.
