Press Release

Featuring music written by Luther students, the show follows legendary astronomer and physicist Galileo Galilei in the later part of his life, and his struggle to prove the theory of a heliocentric universe. In a time of religious rule, Galileo’s avant-garde ideas made him very unpopular with the law—his belief and teachings of a sun-centered solar system had him sent to the Vatican of Rome to be interrogated for heresy.
