Description: Reuniting the score and designs from Philip Glass and Robert Wilson's Einstein on the Beach, this exhibition focuses on the opera's premiere performances in 1976. Visitors will enter a gallery awash in blue light, reminiscent of the opera's stage lighting, where they will encounter Glass's entire never-before-displayed autograph manuscript, as well as Wilson's storyboard, thirteen leaves encompassing 113 scene designs. Footage from the New York rehearsal, and 1976 productions in Paris, Brussels, and Venice will run continuously in the gallery; the documentary "Einstein on the Beach: The Changing Image of Opera," about the 1984 production at BAM, will be screened in the Morgan's Gilder Lehrman Hall throughout the exhibition.
