The year is 1905. A young and uncertain Einstein dares to envision new worlds beyond the limits of classical physics. Drawn deeply into his dreams, he is guided by a mysterious woman – whose elusive identity awakens his full genius.
 

Based on the bestselling novel by Alan Lightman, this elegant new musical bridges worlds imagined and real, exploring the wonders of human imagination and the romance of knowledge.  Through a score rich in lyrical wit and soaring melodies, Einstein’s Dreams unlocks the passionate intellect of one of the 20th century's greatest thinkers.
