In this masterpiece by the great 20th-century dramatist Bertolt Brecht, the famous Renaissance scientist Galileo Galilei engages in a brutal struggle for freedom from authoritarian dogma. Unable to resist an appetite for scientific investigation, Galileo comes into conflict with the Church and must publicly recant, though in private the genius who unleashed revolutionary ideas on the nature of the universe continues to work.
