elcome to this University Musical Society performance. Since 1879, UMS has been enriching the lives of the people of southeast Michigan, including our students, faculty, and staff, through presentations of the world's finest performers of music, theater, and dance.
One of the most significant undertakings in UMS history occurs this winter. For more than
two years, UMS has worked with producers to remount Einstein on the Beach on our campus. For most of January, the creators of this transfor?mative 1976 opera--com?poser Philip Glass, director Robert Wilson, and choreog?rapher Lucinda Childs--are here, along with singers, mu-
sicians, dancers, and crew, preparing the work for its international tour.
This residency provides a tremendous oppor?tunity for our students, faculty, and community to engage with these creative artists. Their stay will conclude with three preview performances at the Power Center January 20-22, representing the first North American presentation of the opera outside of New York City. As people are arriving from throughout the country for this special experience, I am excited we can welcome them to a University committed to celebrating innovators and game-changers in all fields, including the arts.
The Einstein residency launches Pure Michigan Renegade, a 10-week journey showcasing innova?tion and experimentation in dance, theater, and music. Pure Michigan Renegade concludes March 22-25 with American Mavericks, a four-day music festival and residency led by Michael Tilson Thomas with the San Francisco Symphony. It includes a roster of musical stars, including U-M alumna Jessye Norman, Emanuel Ax, Jeremy Denk, Meredith Monk, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. Beyond Ann Arbor, American Mavericks takes place only in San Francisco, Chicago, and at New York's Carnegie Hall.
The UMS season ends on April 22 with the annual Ford Honors Program, where UMS and the University recognize world-renowned artists and ensembles that have had a long and deep relation?ship with us. This year we honor violinist Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, each having appeared five times on our stages over several decades.
I encourage you to attend more UMS events and those offered by the many outstanding arts and cultural organizations of the University. To learn more, visit the University's arts portal, Montage, at

elcome! Thank you for attending this performance. I hope you'll enjoy the experience and attend other UMS events during the remainder of our 133rd season. You'll find a listing of all of our performances towards the center of this program book.
UMS has a rich history. It began in 1879 when four Ann Arbor church choirs joined forces under the direction of Calvin B. Cady to sing choruses from Handel's Messiah. They called the combined choruses the Choral Union. Their rehearsals led to the first Choral Union concert on Tuesday, December 16 of that year, held at the M.E. Church. Henry Simmons Frieze, a distinguished professor of classics and a three-time acting president of the University of Michigan, accompanied the Choral Union on the organ. A year later, the University Musical Society was officially incorporated with Professor Frieze as president.
The program of that first concert is now available online, along with every UMS program throughout our 133-year history. Also available are hundreds of photographs, most of them accom?panied by captions and dates. The programs and photos are available online thanks to our friends at the Ann Arbor District Library. The AADL ob?tained the documents from the University's Bent-ley Historical Library and digitized them, creating the website that now makes these UMS historical documents available to the public. Check it out at We are now in the process of digitizing the remainder of our archives, so stay tuned for a future announcement when more of our history will be accessible online.
UMS is the oldest performing arts pre?senter in the US affiliated with a university. We are proud of our rich history and pleased that we can share so much of it with you online. We also encourage you to visit our interactive web? "People are Talking" about UMS performances, educational programs, and other activities. Join the conver-
sation and let us hear from you. You'll also see videos of rehearsals, performances, artist interviews, and audience inter?views that we hope will enhance your experience with UMS.
We're planning a very special 1213 season as UMS will soon commemorate the 1OOth anniversary of Hill Au-
ditorium. Hill opened on May 14, 1913 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the UMS Choral Union under conductor Frederick Stock as part of the 20th Ann Arbor May Festival. Hill Auditorium is beloved by artists and ensembles everywhere, and we are working hard to plan a season of perfor?mances worthy of the hall's world-class reputation. Look for the season announcement this spring.
I hope you'll get in touch with me if you have any questions, comments, or problems related to UMS. If you don't see me in the lobby, send me an e-mail message at or call me at 734.647.1174. Thanks again for coming to this performance.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
'm delighted to welcome you to this UMS per?formance in my role as Chair of the UMS Board of Directors. I am honored to serve UMS, one of the oldest arts presenting organizations in the country, now in its 133rd season. I serve along with the 34 elected and ex-officio members of the Board whose names appear on page 14 of this program book. Indeed, UMS has more than 750 volunteers,.each providing critical services that contribute to UMS's excellence, including members of the Senate, Advisory Committee, UMS Choral Union, Usher Corps, Teacher Advisory Commit?tee, and our UMS National Council and Corporate Council.
The mission of UMS is "to inspire and en?rich communities by connecting audiences and artists in uncommon and engaging experiences." In pursuing this mission, we have developed a reputation far beyond southeastern Michigan. The scope of our presentations extends beyond music to include dance and theater. In the fall season we were entertained with Gate Theatre Dublin performing Beckett, the amazing artistry of Yuja Wang, mesmerizing movement by Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, and the sounds of A Night in Treme--something for every taste and interest. This winter, we will have the oppor?tunity to enjoy a range of performances by artists including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, as well as rare preview performances of Einstein on the Beach, and a multi-concert residency with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas. We also welcome you to help us conclude our season on Sunday, April
22, 2012 in Hill Auditorium for the Ford Honors Program, which will honor Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Please open your mind and your soul to these and other simi?lar opportunities.
Speaking of heart-warming opportunities, UMS continues to be committed to creating op-
portunities for younger audi?ences to have cultural expe?riences. We provide heavily discounted tickets to students as well as arrange and sup?port special performances for students in K--12 programs. If you ever have the opportunity to attend a UMS youth per-
formance, please arrange to do so. The students express deep and inspiring impressions of a wider world for which they are most appreciative.
We are in the "experience" business. I thank you for attending this performance, and I invite you to attend more UMS performances this sea?son and to support UMS by making a gift. Your support will help UMS continue not only its out?standing presentations but also its award-winning educational programs for people of all ages. There are many ways to contribute to UMS. You'll find more information throughout this program book and on our website at

Dear Friends of the Performing Arts:
his year marks the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Power Center for the Performing Arts. Over the years, the Power Center has provided a flexible venue for music, dance and theater performances of all kinds. It has provided audiences with a comfortable, visually compelling, acoustically correct and technically sophisticated facility to experience performances at the highest level. We both remember how excited we were to experience the Royal Shakespeare Company's back-to-back performances of Henry VI and Richard III in March, 2001! Such compelling theater would not have been possible without the facilities of the Power Center.
This is exactly what Gene and Sadyc Power, Phil's parents, had in mind when they gave the University of Michigan the funds to build the Power Center, which opened in 1971. The idea was to provide a building that could accommodate all varieties of the performing arts, something that was lacking in Ann Arbor at the time. The basic design was originally sketched on the back of an envelope by the renowned architect, Eero Saarinen, just before his death, and carried out by Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo.
Going all the way back to the Arts Theatre Club and the Dramatic Arts Center -mid 20th century efforts to bring theater-in-the-round to Ann Arbor -our family has been involved in supporting the performing arts of all kinds, especially the theater. Gene Power was one of the founders of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival. And Phil, as a Regent of the University of Michigan and a board member of the University Musical Society, helped launch the distinctive UMS international theater series and residency programs at the University.
Over the years -and in years to come -our family has welcomed opportuni?ties to help sustain the performing arts. In this, special mention must be made of the University Musical Society, one of the crown jewels of our community and of the broader world of the performing arts. It merits the financial support of all of us who cherish the value of artistic expression.
We believe strongly that we do not live by bread alone, and that the arts, culture and the humanities are essential parts of a high quality of life in a thriving community. The remounting of Einstein on the Beach and the residency attached to it are perfect examples of the bold experimentation and innovation the Power Center was intended to trigger.

Smoke-Free University
As of July 1, 2011, the smoking of tobacco is no longer permitted on the grounds of the Univer?sity, including the exteriors of U-M theaters and concert halls. Smoking is allowed on sidewalks adjacent to public roads.
Start Time
UMS makes every effort to begin concerts at the published time. Most of our events take place in the heart of central campus, which may have several events occurring simultaneously in dif?ferent theaters. Please allow plenty of extra time to park and find your seats.
Latecomers will be asked to wait in the lobby until seated by ushers. Most lobbies have been outfitted with monitors andor speakers so that latecomers will not miss the performance.
The late-seating break is determined by the artist and will generally occur during a suit?able repertory break in the program (e.g., after the first entire piece, not after individual move?ments of classical works). There may be occa?sions where latecomers are not seated until intermission, as determined by the artist. UMS makes every effort to alert patrons in advance when we know that there will be no late seat?ing. Please be sure the Ticket Office has your e-mail address on file.
UMS works with artists to allow a flexible late-seating policy for family performances.

You can make it formal or ca?sual, a special celebration, or just friends enjoying each other's company. The many advantages to booking as a group include:

hrough a commitment to presenta?tion, education, and the creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves Michigan audi?ences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vig?orous and exciting live performing arts world. Over the past 133 years, strong leadership coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationally recognized performing arts presenters. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied history, balanced by a commitment to dynamic and creative vi?sions of where the performing arts will take us in this new millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts. UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and conducted by Profes?sor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first performance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879 and this glorious oratorio has since been performed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
Many Choral Union members also be?longed to the University, and the University Mu?sical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
Since that first season in 1879, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the performing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theater. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies, and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction, and innovation. UMS now hosts over 60 performances and more than 125 educational events each sea?son. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in six different Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise ex?panded its charge over its 133-year history. Re?cent collaborations have included the Grammy Award-winning recording of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience (2004), Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 ("Babi Yar") with the Mariinsky Orchestra (2006), Orff's Carmina Burana for Maestro Leonard Slatkin's inaugural weekend as Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2008), and Mahler's Symphony No. 2 ("Resurrection") with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas (2010).
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organiza?tion that supports itself from ticket sales, cor?porate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.

xplore. Interact. Create... with UMS.
Workshops, screenings, conversations, and inter?active experiences de?signed to draw you in and out of your comfort zone, connect you to interesting people and unexpected ideas, and bring you closer to the heart of the artistic experience. Read on for a sampling of what's planned this winter:
Saturday Morning Physics: Einstein as a Cultural Figure
Saturday, January 21,1030 am
Rackham Auditorium (915 E. Washington Street)
Einstein on the Beach composer Philip Glass joins a panel of special guests to ponder the cultural significance of Einstein. Glass is joined by Sean Carroll, a theoretical physicist from the California Institute of Technology who has been featured in Wired magazine, the New York Times, and on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, and University of Chicago theoretical physicist and cosmologist Michael Turner who co-authored The Early Universe. U-M faculty member Fred Adams moderates the discussion.
Co-presented by Saturday Morning Physics (U-M Department of Physics) and UMS, with support from Arts at Michigan, U-M Living Arts, and U-M Arts Engine.
UMS Night School:
Explore Pure Michigan Renegade
Mondays, January 9, February 6 and 20, March 12,19, and 26, at 7:00 pm Ann Arbor District Library, Downtown Branch (343 S. Fifth Avenue), Multipurpose Room Hosted by Mark Clague, Professor, U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance
UMS learned that Professor Mark Clague was teaching a U-M course this winter about Pure Michigan Renegade and immediately began thinking about offering a similar experience for the community. The idea of UMS Night School emerged: 90-minute "classes" which include a 30-minute discussion of each Pure Michigan Renegade performance, plus a 60-minute intro session for the next performance on the series. Each intro session includes a presentation by a genre expert, an interac?tive exercise to draw you into the themes behind the performance, and a takeaway reading to enjoy on your own. Sessions are designed to engage you both with the performances and with other audience members. You can attend them all, or choose the ones that interest you . the most--no registration necessary!

a great honor to be in Ann Arbor this weekend previewing
the first public performances of this production of Einstein W on the Beach. Considered one of the most important k operatic events of the 20th century, the importance of F the original 1976 production has been widely studied, its impact acknowledged by even the most conservative of critics.
What is less understood are the challenges of bringing a new production of Einstein on the Beach to fruition and why a work of this importance has been so rarely seen. Einstein requires a touring company of 65 people, including a highly accomplished and consistent design team, a technical crew of 24, the Lucinda Childs Dance Company, a non-traditional chorus, featured actors, the Philip Glass Ensemble, and a versatile solo violinist. Traditional opera houses customarily fea?ture soloists and conductors of their own choosing, their own salaried orchestras, chorus, dancers, and technical staff--none of which can be incorporated into the Einstein production. Other touring alternatives such as performing arts centers and festivals are generally not equipped to handle the financial commitment or tech?nical demands of a production of this scale. Although the desire to bring Einstein to global audiences has only increased over the years, these realities have lead to many false starts and unrealized or abandoned productions.
For these reasons, it's quite an amazing achievement to be in Ann Arbor this weekend. It's a tribute to the leadership of our colleagues Ken Fischer and Michael Kondziolka and their incredible tearn at UMS whose work continues to make Ann Arbor a vital part of the international performing arts field. They not only have a great understanding of international opera, but the vision, commitment, and dedication to support the development of a work of this scale. Our company has been in residence at the Power Center over the past three weeks supported by the tireless efforts of UMS's staff and local crew.
Robert Wilson and Philip Glass are the original creators of Einstein on the Beach. They have been working with their long-time collaborator Lucinda Childs, who is the choreographer for this production (as in 1984 and 1992), which will premiere in Montpellier, France on March 16,2012.
Today you are an important participant in a unique moment in the history of this seminal work as it is remembered and revisited by its creators. After an extensive audition process, this production of Einstein on the Beach has been re-cast and the original design for the set completely rebuilt from Robert Wilson's original drawings. There are instances where what had been cutting-edge--yet quirky--technology in 1976 was employed in the creation of the work and has become a vital component of the final outcome and cannot--and arguably should not--be altered. Now, almost 40 years later, there are other parts of the production that have benefited signifi?cantly by using more modern techniques. It is thrilling to have the original creators, Robert Wilson and Philip Glass, with us in Ann Arbor to help guide that path.
As a producer, it is a gift to have the opportunity to work with Philip, Bob, and Lucinda, three of the greatest artists of our time. Without the vitality and dedication of my brilliant colleagues and associate producers Alisa Regas and Kaleb Kilkenny of Pomegranate Arts, this work could not be possible, and I'm deeply grateful to the Einstein on the Beach company and to all of the people that have been instrumental in helping us realize this production.
Thank you for being a part of our process. --Linda Brumbach, Executive Producer

Robert Wilson {directorset and light design)
The New York Times described Robert Wilson as "a towering figure in the world of experi?mental theater." Mr. Wilson's works integrate a wide variety of artistic media, combining movement, dance, lighting, furniture design, sculpture, music, and text into a unified whole. His images are aesthetically striking and emotionally charged, and his productions have earned the acclaim of audiences and critics worldwide.
Mr. Wilson's awards and honors include two Guggenheim Fellowship awards ('71 and '80), the Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship award ('75), the nomination for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama ('86), the Golden Lion for sculpture from the Venice Biennale ('93), the Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize for lifetime achievement ('96), the Premio Europa award from Taormina Arte ('97), election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters ('00), the National Design Award for lifetime achievement ('01), Commandeur des arts et des letters ('02), the Medal for Arts and Sciences of the city of Hamburg ('09), and the Hein Heckroth-Prize for Set Design ('09).
A native of Waco, Texas, Mr. Wilson was educated at the University of Texas and arrived in New York in 1963 to attend Brooklyn's Pratt Institute. Soon thereafter Mr. Wilson set to work with his Byrd Hoffman School of Byrds and together with this school developed his first signature works including King of Spain ('69), Deafman Glance ('70), The Life and Times of Joseph Stalin ('73), and A Letter for Queen Victoria ('74)Regarded as a leader in Manhattan's burgeoning avant-garde, Mr. Wilson turned his attention to large-scale opera and, with Philip Glass, created the monumental Einstein on the Beach ('76) which achieved world?wide acclaim and altered conventional notions of an arguably moribund form.
After Einstein Mr. Wilson worked increasingly with European theaters and opera houses. In collaboration with internationally renowned writers and performers, Mr. Wilson created landmark original works that were featured regularly at the Festival d'Automne in Paris, the Schaubiihne in Berlin, the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, and the Salzburg Festival. At the Schaubiihne he created Death Destruction & Detroit ('79) and Death Destruction & Detroit II ('87); and at the Thalia he presented the groundbreaking musical works The Black Rider ('91) and Alice ('92). He has also applied his striking formal language to the operatic repertoire including Parsifal in Hamburg ('91) and Houston ('92), The Magic Flute ('91), Madame Butterfly ('93), Lohengrin at the Metropolitan Opera in New York ('98). Mr. Wilson recently completed an entirely new production, based on an epic poem from Indonesia, entitled [0 Galigo, which toured extensively and appeared at the Lincoln Center Festival in the summer of 2005.
Robert Wilson continues to direct revivals of his most celebrated productions, including The Black Rider in London, San Francisco, and Sydney, Australia; The Temptation of St. Anthony in New York and Barcelona; Erwartung in Berlin; Madama Butterfly at the Bolshoi Opera in Moscow, the LA Opera, Het Muziektheater in Amsterdam; and Wagner's The Ring at Le Chatelet in Paris. For the Berliner Ensemble he created two highly acclaimed recent produc?tions: Brecht's Dreigroschenoper and Shakespeare's Sonnets with music by Rufus Wainwright. Both productions received invitations to the Spoleto Festival and travel internationally. Mr. Wilson directs all Monteverdi operas for the opera houses of La Scala in Milan and the Palais Gamier in Paris.
Mr. Wilson's practice is firmly rooted in the fine arts and his drawings, furniture designs, and installations have been shown in museums and galleries internationally. Extensive retrospectives have been presented at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
He has mounted installations at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, London's Clink Street Vaults, and the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao. His extraordinary tribute to Isamu Noguchi has been exhibited most recently at the Seattle Art Museum and his instal?lation of the Guggenheim's Giorgio Armani retrospective traveled to London, Rome, and Tokyo. In 2007, Paula Cooper Gallery and Phillips de Pury & Co. in New York held exhibitions of his most recent artistic venture, the VOOM Portraits, with subjects including Gao Xingjian, Winona Ryder, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Brad Pitt. The works have been shown at the TriBe-Ca Film Festival (2006), the Montreal Film Festival (2008), and in galleries and museums in Los Angeles, Naples, Moscow, Singapore, Graz, Milan, and Hamburg and will continue to tour internationally over the next years. His drawings, prints, videos, and sculpture are held in private collections and museums throughout the world. He is represented by the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York City.

Philip Glass (composer)
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Philip Glass is a graduate of the University of Chicago and The Juilliard School. In the early 1960s, Mr. Glass spent two years of intensive study in Paris with Nadia Boulanger and, while there, earned money by transcribing Ravi Shankar's Indian music into Western notation. Upon his return to New York, he applied these Eastern techniques to his own music. By 1974, Mr. Glass had a number of significant and innovative projects, creating a large collection of new music for his performing group, the Philip Glass Ensemble, and for the Mabou Mines Theater Company, which he co-founded. This period culminated in Music in Twelve Parts, followed by the landmark opera, Einstein on the Beach, created with Robert Wilson in 1976.
Since Einstein, Mr. Glass has expanded his repertoire to include music for opera, dance, theater, chamber ensemble, orchestra, and film. His score for Martin Scorsese's Kundun received an Academy Award nomination while his score for Peter Weir's The Truman Show won him a Golden Globe. His film score for Stephen Daldry's The Hours received Golden Globe, Grammy, and Academy Award nominations, along with winning a BAFTA in Film Music from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Original scores for the critically acclaimed films The Illusionist and Aores on a Scandal were released last year. Mr. Glass has received an Oscar nomination for his Notes score.
In 2004 Philip Glass premiered the new work Orion--a collaboration between Mr. Glass and six other international artists opening in Athens as part of the cultural celebration of the 2004 Olympics in Greece--and his Piano Concerto No. 2 (After lewis and Clark) with the Omaha Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Glass' Symphonies No. 7 and Wo. 8 premiered in 2005 with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, and Bruckner Orchester Linz at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, respec?tively. 2005 also saw the premiere of Waiting for the Barbarians, an opera based on the book by J.M. Coetzee. Mr. Glass' orchestral tribute to Indian spiritual leader Sri Ramakrishna, The Passion of Ramakrishna, premiered in 2006 at Orange County Performing Arts Center.
Mr. Glass maintained a dense creative schedule throughout 2007 and 2008, unveiling several highly anticipated works, including Book of Longing, a collaboration with Leonard Cohen, and an opera about the end of the Civil War, titled Appomattox. In April 2007, the English National Opera, in conjunction with the Metropolitan Opera, remounted Mr. Glass' Satyagraha, which appeared in New York in April 2008. Recent film projects include a score to Woody Allen's film, Cassandra's Dream, and a documentary on Ray Kurzweil, Transcen?dent Man, which premiered in April 2009.
Mr. Glass' recent opera, based on the life and work of Johannes Kepler and commissioned by Linz 2009, Cultural Capital of Europe, and Landestheater Linz, premiered in September 2009 in Linz, Austria and in November 2009 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Symphony No. 9 was completed in 2011 and will be premiered in Linz, Austria, on January 1, 2012 by the Bruckner Orchestra with a US premiere in New York City at Carnegie Hall on January 31,2012 as part of the composer's 75th birthday celebration. Symphony No. 10 will receive its European premiere in France in the summer of 2012.
Lucinda Childs (choreographer, spoken text)
Lucinda Childs is one of America's most important modern choreographers. Of her work, which is often described as conceptual dance, she has said, "My dances are an intense experience, of intense looking and listening." Ms. Childs was born in New York City in 1940. In her second year at Sarah Lawrence College, she took a class with visiting professor Merce Cunningham. After she completed her degree, she went on to study at the Cunningham Studio. There she met Yvonne Rainer, who went on to co-found (with Steve Paxton) the influential Judson Dance Theater and invited Ms. Childs to be one of Judson's original com?pany members. Describing this period, Ms. Childs has said, "Nothing is necessarily extrane?ous to dance, including the professionally trained dancer's susceptibility to the influence of nonprofessionals. The Judson Dance Theater concerned itself with this idea...materials as objects combining dance phrases with movement activity in relation to objects...a unified idiom of action, but a cumulative trend of activity that did not follow along one isolated scheme." After she formed her own company in 1973, Ms. Childs collaborated with Robert Wilson and Philip Glass on Einstein on the Beach. Einstein features choreography by Lucinda Childs who choreographed the opera in 1984 and 1992 and was a principal performer in the original production in 1976 and subsequent revivals in '84 and '92. It was during rehearsals for Einstein that Ms. Childs and Mr. Glass came up with the original idea for her seminal work, Dance. In a Washington Post review of Dance, Alan M. Kriegsman wrote, "A few times, at most, in the course of a decade a work of art comes along that makes a genuine break?through, defining for us new modes of perception and feeling and clearly belonging as much to the future as to the present. Such a work is Dance"
Along with Mr. Glass, Solomon LeWitt, and Robert Wilson, Ms. Childs has worked with such artists, composers, and directors as John Adams, Frank Gehry, Henryk Gorecki, Robert Mapplethorpe, Terry Riley, and laanis Xenakis. Ms. Childs received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1979, the year she created Dance. She is also the recipient of the NEANEFA American Masterpiece Award, and in 2004 she was elevated from the rank of Officer to Commander in France's Order of Arts and Letters. Most recently she has choreographed Tempo Vicino with music by John Adams for the Ballet National of Marseille, which premiered in May 2009.
Christopher Knowles {spoken text)
Born in 1959, Christopher Knowles lives in Brooklyn, New York. In 1973 at the age of 14, he met Robert Wilson. Mr. Wilson heard an audio recording by Mr. Knowles, and invited him to collaborate and perform with his company, a partnership that continues today. Mr. Knowles first exhibited in 1974, and had solo exhibitions at Holly Solomon Gallery in 1978 and 1979Mr. Knowles is best known for his "typings" of the 1970s and '80s, text-based pieces that were developed as a private pastime. The exceptional ability in mathematical organization revealed in these works is a characteristic by-product of autism, with which Mr. Knowles was diagnosed as a child. His work also reveals affinities with the structure of serial art and music, and has a strong relationship to performance (the artist has also made live and recorded performances of his texts). Mr. Knowles' typings, created on an electric typewriter, using red, black, and green inks, employ lists of words and phrases, including those derived from pop charts. Additional features include geometrical patterns, carefully built up using the artist's initial, V. Mr. Knowles is represented by Gavin Brown's enterprise in New York.

The Watermill Center
Watermill is a laboratory for performance founded by Robert Wilson as a unique envi?ronment for young and emerging artists from around the world to explore new ideas. Watermill draws inspiration from all the arts and cultures as well as from social, human, and natural sciences. Watermill is a global community of artists where living and working together among the extensive collection of art and artifacts lies at the heart of the experi?ence. Watermill strives to be a haven for a next generation of artists while supporting their work among a network of international institutions that embrace new interdisciplinary approaches.
Many of the world's most celebrated artists have participated in Watermill programs including Trisha Brown, David Byrne, Lucinda Childs, Philip Glass, Isabelle Huppert, Jeanne Moreau, Lou Reed, Miranda Richardson, Dominique Sanda, Susan Sontag, and Robert Wilson himself. Theaters and museums around the world have mounted dozens of projects that were originally developed at the Watermill Center.
In the words of Jessye Norman, "Watermill is the best idea to find a place in the world of arts since Pierre Boulez created IRCAM in Paris. Robert Wilson's unique gifts and spirit provide the strong basis of a new vision of the creation and presentation of all that we think of as theater in particular, combining all of the arts in a fresh perspective."
The Byrd Hoffman Watermill Foundation operates the Center and coordinates its artis?tic programs. In addition, the Center has established collaborative networks with both neighboring and international cultural and educational institutions. Its artistic programs are financed through the generous support of individuals, foundations, corporations, and state institutions.
The Watermill Center's new facilities were inaugurated in July 2006. Since the Grand Open?ing, the Watermill Center offers a wide range of programs and activities throughout the year. For the well-known International Summer Arts Program, Mr. Wilson invites 60-80 artists who come from over 25 countries--48 countries so far--for four to five weeks of intense creative exploration. There are daily workshops with Mr. Wilson and his collaborators, based on new projects they are developing in all areas of the arts. Residents also develop their own work under Mr. Wilson's guidance. A lecture series completes the ambitious program. Its mission is to give young emerging artists time and space to create new original works in all artistic fields and related disciplines and to offer them a network of associated institu?tions, artists, and alumni to support them in their artistic and professional development.
For the Center's fall and spring residency programs, which take place from September to June, a high profile committee of practitioners in the arts and humanities--including Mr. Wilson, Marina Abramovic, Alanna Heiss, Albert Maysles, Gerard Mortier, John Rockwell, Jonathan Safran Foer, Richard Sennett, Nike Wagner, and others--selects over 15 groups, individual artists, and scholars-in-residence to workshop their own creations. The residen?cies are complemented by educational programs with schools and other institutions; public events such as open rehearsals and lectures, seminars and symposia, and tours of the building and grounds.
The London-based performance and video artist Daria Martin writes about her Watermill experience:
We are encouraged to use the space as we see fit, whenever suits us.... We also enjoyed the freedom of wandering through Robert Wilson's incredible collection of objects, unhindered by protective glass, etc.--these statues add a provocative texture to thoughts and to work.... The peace and tranguility here is gold dust. You can watch your own thoughts drift past like in a meditation....

This weekend's preview performances of Robert Wilson and Philip Glass' Einstein on the Beach mark the Philip Glass Ensemble's eighth, ninth, and 10th appearances under UMS auspices.
The Philip Glass Ensemble made its UMS debut in April 1995 in a performance of Mr. Glass' La Belle et la Bete at the Michigan Theater. The Ensemble returned to the Michigan Theater in April 1999 for a performance of Monsters of Grace: A Digital Opera in Three Dimensions with visual concept by Robert Wilson and music by Philip Glass. Over four nights in October and November 2001, UMS presented Philip on Film: A Festival of Concert Screenings featur?ing Mr. Glass' original film scores to Tod Browning's Dracula; shorts by filmmakers Atom Egoyan, Peter Greenaway, Shirin Neshat, Godfrey Reggio, and Michal Rovner; and Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi performed by Philip Glass and the Philip Glass Ensemble also at the Michigan Theater. Last season, UMS presented a concert performance of Mr. Glass' Violin Concerto No. 2: "The American Four Seasons" with violin soloist Robert McDuffie and the Venice Baroque Orchestra at Hill Auditorium.
