Bertolt Brecht’s masterly portrait of genius under fire is shockingly relevant in today’s world of fake news and science denialism. Leading the large ensemble, acting legend Michael Hurst masterfully embodies the genius, flaws and cunning mischief of Galileo: a man who found truth in the stars, risked heresy and changed how we see the heavens.
The Life of Galileo promises a night of bold ideas, brilliant theatricality and speaking truth to power. On at ASB Waterfront Theatre, 22 June–10 July.
