Theater Basel presents a new production of Philip Glass and Bob Wilson's Einstein on the Beach.

Einstein on the Beach
Opera in four acts by Philip Glass and Bob Wilson

In her first opera production, Susanne Kennedy creates a futuristic total work of art about space and time. Utilising her unmistakable style of theatre, she smashes the boundaries between humans and machines, reality and simulation. Inspired by the unconventional genius Albert Einstein, Philip Glass created a 20th century masterpiece that breaks all the rules of opera and fails to follow a linear narrative structure. Repetitive patterns make it possible to experience time as a sensual phenomenon and put the audience in a trance. This is the first time that the two special ensembles of Basler Madrigalisten and Ensemble Phoenix can be experienced together in an opera production at Theater Basel.

Performances June 4 – 24, 2022
