This unique opera performance is definitely one of its kinds. The music used in Einstein on the Beach is highly specific to the opera itself and has said to be composed over the duration of almost a year i.e. from spring to fall of 1975. According to Glass, he composed the score keeping in mind individual characters of the opera by using their sketches as inspiration to drive his compositions. The opera hit the theatre with its premiere in France at the Avignon Festival in 1976 and has been running to entertain audiences ever since. This masterpiece includes writings by renowned legends like Samuel M. Johnson, Lucinda Childs and Christopher Knowles, and is famous for being the first and the longest opera by Philip Glass with performance duration of around five hours without intermission.
This opera went on to become a part of the Portrait Trilogy by Glass which brought together works of the same theme with Einstein on the Beach followed by Satyagraha (1979), and Akhnaten (1983). This association classified Einstein on the Beach as being amongst portraits of people who brought about a change in thinking during their time through their personal vision rather than through the exercising of any coercive power or military force. The duo that comprised of Glass and Wilson began working on the opera with the intent to portray the legend as an iconic figure in history without attaching any storyline to his character. However, the final piece ended up having excerpts of Einstein’s life events incorporated into the opera’s characters, music and scenery but the opera itself did not comprise of any specific plot. This was a result of Wilson’s state of the art formalist approach which he claimed to focus more on depicting the truth on stage compared to naturalist theater.
Embedded amongst the individual acts of the opera are Wilson’s celebrated trademark knee plays, a signature technique used by the director throughout the length of his career. Based on the idea of not having a significant plot, the opera employed the use of some poetry, numbers, and solfège syllables in its libretto which served as cues for the singers to memorize their parts. The unique music of the opera is bound to make the audience connect with the character of Einstein at a personal level. The heavy use of numerical repetition throughout the opera is an obvious reference to the scientific and mathematical accomplishments achieved by Einstein in his lifetime. Everything from the set used on stage to the lighting, props and costumes in the performance are an ode to Einstein’s life.
The knee plays incorporated between the opera’s acts function as the connecting element, adding to the coherence of the opera, and also serve as the opening and ending scenes for the acts. Not only do the knee plays provide the required time to swap sets between each act, they also add to opera’s creative aspect through their entertaining music which makes the performance all the more interesting.
