Robert Wilson, a renowned U.S. theater choreographer and set designer, will meet with theater goers in Warsaw Jan. 28 to talk about his work.

Wilson is known as one of America's foremost vanguard theater artists. During his long career in the theater he has worked as a choreographer and designed multimedia effects for the stage. He worked with Philip Glass on the production of Einstein on the Beach and with William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Tom Waits, and David Byrne.

Wilson first studied business administration at the University of Texas, but later, at the beginning of the 1960s, transferred to the faculties of architecture and fine art.

Wilson's first significant set designs were for The King of Spain and The Life and Times of Sigmund Freud. In 1970, his work on Einstein on the Beach was his first attempt at set design for an opera. He later designed an operatic event that accompanied the 1984 Olympic Games. The opera, The Civil Wars: A Tree Is Best Measured When It Is Down, was inspired by the American Civil War and jointly written by music composers from all over the world.

Date: Jan. 28
Place: Wielki Theater/National Opera, 1 Teatralny Sq.,
Time: 7:15 p.m.
