Einstein on the beach – Philip Glass Opera Trilogy

Her Majesty's Theatre - August 2014

« Back to Reviews

“Conductor Timothy Sexton shows brilliance in the way he leads both the quintet of musicians from the Adelaide Art Orchestra and the sixteen singers from the State Opera Chorus. Einstein on the beach must be one of the most difficult operas for musicians to play or chorus to sing as they shift through so many micro-changes in rhythm. They never missed a beat of this mesmerising musical chant. The singers blended so well with the quintet that, with their repetitive sounds, they could easily have passed as an extension of the music. They were mathematically precise, their diction crisp and clear”.

“Leigh Warren and Timothy Sexton’s realisation of Philip Glass’s contemporary work Einstein on the beach is outstanding……Conductor Timothy Sexton and members of the Adelaide Art Orchestra take a position upstage centre in Her Majesty’s Theatre, and set themselves to play the complex score for four hours”.
