With “unerring performers, the superb Philadelphia choir The Crossing” (The New Yorker) offers a special programmatic pairing as part of our #GLASSFEST celebration. Philip Glass’ Knee Plays served as interludes in his first opera, Einstein on the Beach, which began a trio of works about men who changed the world with the power of their ideas. Einstein on the Beach was directed by Robert Wilson, who later sought out David Byrne as composer for a new, New Orleans-inspired The Knee Plays for his opera the CIVIL warS. Now, The Crossing, conducted by Donald Nally, offers a rare opportunity to experience these connected works on one program.
