An Opera by Philip Glass

Libretto by Mary Zimmerman

With Phillip Glass and Arnold Weinstein

Music by Philip Glass

Aik Khai Pung, conductor

Greg Eldridge, director

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.
Location: Patricia Corbett Theater
