    About The Work

    Each limited edition by Robert Wilson is packed in a grey cardboard box along with the enhanced drawing, a certificate of authenticity, numbered and signed by the artist, and a copy of the book Einstein on the Beach, numbered and signed by the artist. The book focuses on the creation of this revolutionary opera through Robert Wilson's sketchbook and storyboard. Those pages show how the opera was imagined first and how it gradually took shape, as we know it today. The facsimile of an original text by Philip Glass, wrote at the time, describes the musical score and the link it has to Wilson's stageplay. Fourteen photographs of the four performances of the opera (1976, 1984, 1992, 2012) show the completion of this fruitful collaboration between the two artists.
