Philip Glass & Robert Wilson: Einstein on the Beach [Blu-ray] Lowest new price: $25.99
Lowest used price: $33.43
List price: $39.99

“I began with this photo of Einstein in his study at Princeton. I looked at many photos of Einstein. Photos of him when he was two years old, 20 years old, 40, 60, 70 years old. In all standing portraits of him, he held his hand in the same position as in the photo. The little space between his thumb and the next finger is always the same. I started the opera with this gesture. And continued.” (Robert Wilson)

“I don’t care about music theory, I’m only interested in listening to music. I begin by listening. Like images emerging from the mist and becoming visible.” (Philip Glass)

“It was the time of pop art and minimalism, often one set against the other. Pop art is a proclamation of the end of the world. The minimal movement is a new beginning.” (Lucinda Childs)

Press Reviews
"At the Théâtre du Châtelet, the opera first performed in 1976 by Bob Wilson and Philip Glass causes the same emotion as when it was first created. A true work of art of about four and a half hours where the visual is inseparable from the musical score. There are several ways to approach the revival thirty-seven years later: One can be nostalgic about what was progressive in one's youth and since became a classic; with the jaded look of the 2014 listener who heard dozens of works by Glass and Wilson since and seen so many shows and whom nothing can surprise. Or one can disregard all memory layers and open one's eyes filled with wonder as if it were the first time: Which is what happened! ... And most striking is that, compared to many pioneers of the past who now seem quite insipid as times went on, their creation has kept its surprises." (Le Figaro)

"On the evening of Tuesday, January 7, time flew and space became infinite. It was the opening night of Einstein on the Beach, the opera by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson, and after curtain down, at about 11 o clock, you could see in front of the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris, people who had the look of brightness of a hypnotic journey. They came out of the performance, but is that the right word when it comes to this sensory experience? Not sure, and whatever. What matters is what happened: During more than four hours in an auditorium where everyone was invited to come and go at will, and where, however, almost no one left. Not because the audience did not want to disturb their neighbours; because they just did not want to leave, not even for a short time, and take their attention away from what they saw and heard. " (Le Monde)

List price: $36.99

Recent Grammy award-winner Joyce DiDonato stars as Cinderella in the debut Covent Garden production of Massenet's Centrillon. DiDonato captures all hearts- not just Prince Charming's- in this enchanting, sophisticated retelling of the classical fairy tale. The charming production is by the famed French opera director Laurent Pelly (who also directed the best-selling DVD of Donizetti's La Fille du Regiment starring Natalie Dessay and Juan Diego Florez).

The Cinderella fairy tale as seen through the eyes of the belle epoque, Massenet's Cendrillon was first performed at the Opera-Comique in Paris in 1899 and its gorgeous score embraces pathos, pastiche, broad humor, subtle eroticism and sheer magic. In Summer 2011, its debut at London's Royal Opera House was built around mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, who first took on the title role at the Santa Fe festival in 2006.

The New York Times found Joyce DiDonato's performance "thoroughly enchanting. She won sympathy for the girl's plight at once, and her exquisite articulation of the repeated phrase "Vous etes mon Prince Charmant" in the first love duet- surely the opera's most ravishing moments- was flawless."

Supporting DiDonato are bass-baritone Jean-Philippe Lafont, who made his Covent Garden debut in this production, soprano Eglise Gutierrez, mezzo-soprano Alice Coote, contralto Ewa Podles, and conductor Bertrand de Billy.
