Kepler - Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)
Through November 21, 2009 -

Regarded as one of the most important composers of our time, minimalist pioneer Philip Glass continues to enthrall audiences around the world with his ever-evolving operas, orchestral works, and film scores. With Kepler, Glass pushes into the sonic and celestial beyond in a concert version of his opera about Johannes Kepler (1571-1630), a founding father of modern science who discovered the laws of planetary motion.

Spacious, elemental, and imbued with wonder, Glass' hypnotic score becomes the sound of the cosmos as we witness Kepler struggling to reconcile scientific discovery with the divine. Celebrated conductor Dennis Russell Davies and Bruckner Orchestra Linz support a stellar cast and 42-member chorus drawn from the Upper Austrian State Theatre, Linz, in this illuminating portrait of science at the dawn of our modern age.
