      Einstein on the Beach, an opera performed by the Grand Théâtre de Genève 30m

      An excerpt of the opera Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson, performed by the Einstein-Ensemble, specially composed with students of the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève - HEM for the performance at the Grand Théâtre de Genève.

      Einstein on the Beach is a masterclass in how to create a work on Einstein's theory of relativity without being a physicist, besides, what kind of physicist would want to do that? The flow of the music forms the base for a meditation on the passing of time, spaces and events. The opera is considered to be one of the most important musical creations of the twentieth century.

      • Set-up: performance with reddish lights and only keyboard connected, 4 singers and 1 violinist - no mic

      From particle physics to medtech and biomedical research 30m

      Physicists study the fundamental structure of the universe using highly complex instruments and technology, such as CERN's accelerators, detectors and computing systems. Some of these instruments have applications beyond particle physics, in areas such as biomedical research, diagnostics and therapy for a variety of diseases. Progress in these medical fields can sometimes be linked to technological innovation at CERN. Join us as we explore some of the examples of knowledge and technology transfer from CERN to the healthcare sector. (English with translation to French)
