The Life of Galileo by Bertolt Brecht (Adapted by David Edgar)

Apr 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Performed outdoors at Dorothea Dix Park, 1030 Richardson Dr. Raleigh, NC 27603

Bertolt Brecht’s classic play about the Italian physicist, astronomer and engineer, Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642), who used his notoriety to champion the idea, originally espoused by Copernicus, that the earth revolved around the Sun, rather than the other way around. This set him at odds with the existing Catholic Church, who branded him a heretic and threatened to execute him if he didn’t recant. This new English language translation has only been presented once in the United States and will be a Southeastern premiere.
