Twenty years since its last production, 'Einstein on the Beach' - an opera in Four Acts composed by Philip Glass and directed by Robert Wilson - receives its UK premiere in the Barbican Theatre. 'Einstein on the Beach' breaks all of the rules of conventional opera. Non-narrative in form, the work uses a series of recurrent images as its main storytelling device shown in juxtaposition with abstract dance sequences created by American choreographer Lucinda Childs. Taking place over five hours, there is no intermission, however the audience is invited to enter and exit at liberty during the performance.
