“Over the last three years , Bob Wilson and I have been meeting to work on a new theater piece, Monsters of Grace. Since Einstein on the Beach in 76, we have come together on several occasions to make new work, but unlike those projects, with this present work, we have had a real opportunity to sit together and engage in a new world of ideas. Of course inage, music and structure are at the root of what we are thinking. We are, moreover, addressing a challange of a new technology and it's impact of a developing artistic view. It is fair to say that as an on going process, it is still fluid, elusive, and for us, full of surprise.”
“Opera by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson. Poems by Jalaluddin Rumi, translated and adapted from the original by Coleman Barks.”

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have seen this opera in Athens/Greece over a decade ago. We had to wear 3D glasses and I was fascinated. I've been waiting for years for the music to be recorded and finally I found it in your blog! You turned my day into a beautiful garden amidst this catastrophic atmosphere around us here in Greece.
Thank you again.

And thanks for including the whole booklet in your post. The poems are as important as the music. People who are interested in C. Rumi should search in the web for "Mevlana" and "Whirling dervishes".
