Three Tales is a three act digital video opera created by Steve Reich in collaboration with video artist Beryl Korot.

Three Tales recalls three well known events from the early, middle and late 20th century: Hindenberg, Bikini, and Dolly. Each of these reflects on the growth and implications of technology during the 21st century from early air transport and world wars to the current ethical debate about the future of our species. This debate about the physical, ethical and religious nature of the expanding technological environment has continued and grown pervasive since 1945.

This Nonesuch release pairs a CD of the music with a DVD also containing the video material, at a special reduced price.
