Show Summary Details


This chapter presents Reich's thoughts about Three Tales. Three Tales is a new kind of musical theater in which historical film and video footage, videotaped interviews, photographs, text, and specially constructed stills are created on the computer, transferred to videotape, and projected on one large 32-foot screen. Sixteen musicians and singers take their place onstage below the screen. The completed work runs about 65 minutes.
