Philip Glass - Einstein on the Beach
At the 1976 première performance of Philip Glass’ opera Einstein on the Beach minimal music suddenly emerged from the shady regions of the underground to find its way to a much larger audience. In this surprising collaboration between Suzanne Vega, the Ictus contemporary music ensemble and Collegium Vocale Gent you will hear Glass’ music in its purest form. The hall will remain open for the duration of the three-hour concert of this opera to enable the audience to walk in and out. An immersion in minimalist sound, reinforced by a lighting concept designed by visual artist Germaine Kruip.
