EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH
HER MAJESTY’S THEATRE
7 AUG – 21 AUG 2014
A quiet three note organ introduction and repeated numbers from the chorus. With this simple opening, the vast canvas that is Einstein on the Beach is slowly revealed. The simple diatonic chords challenging and exhausting. Einstein on the Beach is a tour-de-force for singers, instrumentalists, dancers and audiences alike.
The simple yet effective movements of the excellent State Opera Chorus making them truly part of the productionLimelightBrett Allen-Bayes
It is a very clever production, a rich integration of light and shadows, dance and gesture, singing and sound that contribute like daubs of paint on a canvas to create an impressionist portrait of many of the things that made Einstein tickBachtrackBrian Angus
