Philip Glass Opera in Brooklyn

Kepler Brooklyn Academy of
(November 18–21). In the popular imagination, Philip Glass is a composer of
film scores and repeating minimalist patterns; but he’s also an eminent, and prolific, opera
composer, with a particular interest in scientists (Einstein and Galileo have featured in past
works). His 23rd opera (according to his website) will have its world premiere in Linz, Austria
(where the astronomer Johannes Kepler lived in the early 17th century) before coming to Brooklyn
under the baton of one of Glass’s oldest friends and champions, Dennis Russell Davies.
