This year, the Gala will mark the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s discovery of the General Theory of Relativity—one of the deepest and most remarkable theories ever contemplated—by honoring one of the truly great theoretical physicists of our time, Dr. Edward Witten from the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.

The World Science Festival Gala is a unique event on the New York cultural calendar, celebrating the insights of science through the power of performance. The Gala provides critical support for the Festival’s year-round programming, both live and in the digital space.
