Galileo
Composer:Andy Akiho
Librettist:Bertolt Brecht
Synopsis

Director Yuval Sharon radically re-imagines Bertolt Brecht’s play Life of Galileo around an enormous fire sculpture by artist Liz Glynn, with original music by composer Andy Akiho. A cast of singers, actors dancers, and a full orchestra with Taiko drummers, will bring to life Galileo’s story in a carnivalesque atmosphere.

The action of the play follows the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei and his conflict with the Roman Catholic Church. Brecht wrote the play in exile, including an English version that premiered in Los Angeles in 1947. In GALILEO, his tragic story becomes an elemental parable about the freedom of thought, despairing and hopeful, timeless and more timely than ever.
