Perhaps the world's foremost avant-garde theater artist, Robert Wilson (born 1941) ranges across opera, theater, visual arts, video, furniture and set design in his pursuit of astounding multimedia spectacles. Susan Sontag wrote of his career, "It has the signature of a major artistic creation. I can't think of any body of work as large or as influential." Wilson's legendary operatic work with Philip Glass, Einstein on the Beach, upended operatic conventions, and Wilson has also left his mark on masterworks of the classical and modern repertoires, from The Magic Flute to Madame Butterfly, Lulu to The Threepenny Opera, and in theater from Hamlet to Orlando and Happy Days. Robert Wilson from Within celebrates the achievements of this "total artist," from his earliest works to his latest, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic. World renowned artists, composers, actors, theater directors, costume designers, scenographers and musicians give their perspectives on Wilson's work, accompanied by lavish images including a personal series selected and annotated by Wilson and a catalogue raisonne of his complete works, with full production information.
