SYNOPSIS Part of Robert Wilson's multi-composer epic for the Olympic Games of 1984, the Rome Section of the "the CIVIL warS" is a unit all its own, non-narrative, and portrays the future, the present, the past (both near and distant), and the legendary - all existing simultaneously. The opera is symbolic, metaphysical, realistic, metaphorical, and its staging ranges from ancient Athens to the spaceship-filled future of the human race. Discography - CIVIL warS: a tree is best measured when it is down. ACT V - Rome Section.
Originally, The Civil Wars was conceived as a single daylong piece of music theatre to accompany the 1984 Summer Olympics. Six different composers from six different countries were to compose sections of Wilson's text inspired by the American Civil War. After initial premieres in their countries of origin, the six parts were to be fused in one epic performance in Los Angeles during the games, a parallel to the internationalist ideals of the Olympic movement. Minneapolis section: The Knee Plays. The American section of The Civil Wars was a series of twelve brief interludes intended to connect the larger scenes and provide time for set changes. David Byrne was the composer of these mostly wordless pieces, and choreography was by Suzushi Hanayagi. The Knee Plays premiered in April 1984 at the Walker Art Center. "Robert Wilson's Civil WarS amount to nothing".
AN opera is best measured when it is produced. So it is welcome news that one act, at least, of Robert Wilson's quirkily titled 12-hour opera, ''the CIVIL warS: a tree is best measured when it is down,'' arrived on Sunday evening for 10 performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The fervent hosannas that were so faithfully relayed back to us for six years whenever a segment of the work was tried out anywhere in the world no longer need be taken on faith
