Galileo Galilei | CCM Opera

 —  —

Patricia Corbett Theater, University of Cincinnati

An Opera by Philip Glass; Libretto by Mary Zimmerman

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.

Chuanyuan debuts at CCM Opera for this double casted production as Cardinal 1/Oracle 1 on Friday, Apr 1st at 7:30 pm and Sunday, Apr 3rd at 2:00 pm.

WORLD PREMIERE IN CONCERT

The Hours, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Michael Cunningham and an award-winning film, chronicles a day in the life of three women from three different eras with interwoven stories connected to Virginia Woolf’s novel Mrs. Dalloway. Though separated through time by nearly 80 years, Virginia Woolf, Laura Brown, and Clarissa Vaughan (a modern-day Mrs. Dalloway herself) struggle with the notion of living their lives for someone else.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestra, joined by a brilliant cast, bring this compelling story to life on the Verizon Hall stage.

WORLD PREMIERE

A silent, expectant grove. A violent encounter between a man, a woman, and a notorious brigand.

Seven testimonies, each proposing a different perspective on the crime. Akutagawa’s classic short story “In a Grove,” which inspired the plot of Kurosawa’s renowned film Rashomon, offers a searing investigation into the impossibility and elusiveness of truth.

Music by Christopher Cerrone, libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, based on the short story by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa. Antony Walker conducts; Mary Birnbaum directs.

Six performances: February 19, 22, 25, 27, March 1 & 3, 2022
