About

Orange Mountain Music is proud to present the world premiere recording of Philip Glass’ opera Galileo Galilei. The opera draws from letters of Galileo and his family, along with various other documents, to retrospectively journey through Galileo’s life. 

The opera opens with him as an old, blind man after the inquisition for his heresy and explores his religiosity as well as his break with the church and expands into the greater oscillating relationship of science to both religion and art. It reaches its end with Galileo, as a young boy, watching an opera composed by his father.
