- Keep Circulating the Tapes: This opera wasn't even filmed until 2014. It premiered in the 1970s. It took until 2017 for the work to get a proper Blu-Ray release.
- Reality Subtext: Much of the work is based on things Einstein actually did. Robert Wilson even relates that the posing of the actors was inspired by a photograph of the physicist.
