As Galileo nears the end of his life, he reflects on the major milestones that defined him and his legacy – his trial for heresy, his scientific discoveries and the loss of his beloved daughter. Drawn from the letters and publications of one of history’s greatest minds, this opera journeys through the life of the father of modern astronomy, offering a complex meditation on the intertwining of art and science and the cyclical nature of existence.
