Philip Glass and Robert Wilson

. May 16, 2012.

Enjoy a rare opportunity to hear two titans of twentieth-century performance tell their stories in their own words, as the University of Michigan Museum of Art, the University Musical Society and the Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series present a public interview with Philip Glass and Robert Wilson. Glass, the enormously influential minimalist composer, and Wilson, artist, director and theatrical innovator, famously collaborated on Einstein on the Beach, the landmark 1976 opera that with its stark, narrative-free form pushed the limits of modern music capabilities. Einstein on the Beach will be performed at the Power Center January 20-22, and Wilson's exhibition Video 50 is at UMMA January 7-April 29. 4pm. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty. 734-668-8463.
