A native of Waco,Texas, Robert Wilson was educated at the
University of Texas and arrived in New York in 1963 to attend
Brooklyn's Pratt Institute. Soon thereafter,Wilson set to work with
his Byrd Hoffman School of Byrds and, together with his company,
developed his first signature works. Regarded as a leader of
Manhattan's then-burgeoning downtown art scene, Wilson turned his
attention to large-scale opera and, with Philip Glass, created the
monumental Einstein on the Beach (1976), which achieved
worldwide acclaim and altered conventional notions of a moribund
Following Einstein, Wilson worked increasingly with major European theaters and opera houses. In collaboration with internationally renowned writers and performers, Wilson created landmark original works that were featured regularly at the Festival d'Automne in Paris, Der Berliner Ensemble, the Schaubühne in Berlin, the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, the Salzburg Festival, and BAM's Next Wave Festival. He has also applied his striking formal language to the operatic repertoire. Wilson continues to direct revivals of his most celebrated productions, and with a practice firmly rooted in the fine arts, he often exhibits his drawings, furniture designs, and installations in museums and galleries internationally. Every summer Wilson decamps to the Watermill Center, a laboratory for the arts and humanities in eastern Long Island that brings together students and experienced professionals in a multidisciplinary environment dedicated to creative collaboration. Among his numerous awards and honors are an Obie for direction, the Golden Lion for sculpture from the Venice Biennale, and a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize in drama. He has been named a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture.
