1CD + DVD

In celebration of the 2012 revival of Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Orange Mountain Music and BAM present Einstein on the Beach.

It is a one CD highlight collection of the entire opera, with a companion DVD of the film The Changing Image of Opera affordably priced and available for the first time.

This never-before-heard recording is drawn from live performances at BAM in 1984 and produced by Kurt Munkacsi. The Chris A. Verges film The Changing Image of Opera documents the 1984 production at BAM and has never received wide distribution.

This OMM recording hopes to bring this exciting package to the public at a reasonable price: CD and DVD package available at a single CD price.

"A souvenir for those who know the work, and artfully constructed sample for those who don`t." --Karrie Jacobs, The Village Voice

"An enthralling elemental work, disturbing in only the best sense. The fact of its existence, of the awesome brilliance of its production, becomes a celebration of creation." --Alan Rich, New York Magazine "

A cultural landmark of the first order...The heart of the Wilson-Glass opus with its mesmerizing choreography by Lucinda Childs, is mystery, from start to finish - the sense of mystery one feels when contemplating the infinite cosmos or the riddles of human consciousness..the imagery ranges from stylized spaceships to things as mundane as a chorus of singers brushing their teeth. --Alan Kriegsman, The Washington Post
