To Do Friday: Raise a Glass

phlipglass To Do Friday: Raise a Glass

Philip Glass

It’s a weekend of Philip Glass—and no, we’re not spending the next two days in bed watching Koyaanisqatsi on loop. (It’s not college anymore!) Tonight brings the premiere of Mr. Glass’s opera Einstein on the Beach at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, with tomorrow seeing a private brunch with theatrical producer Robert Wilson at the home of art patron Mickey Straus. This long-in-development production’s tour has been to France, Italy and Canada thus far—if you miss it in Brooklyn, you’ll have to fly out to Berkeley.

Premieres tonight at Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House, 30 Lafayette Avenue (Brooklyn), 7pm, with 1pm brunch tomorrow at the home of Mickey Straus; tickets and information can be found at bam.org/einstein and watermillcenter.org/events/eob_benefit.
