Editorial Reviews

Orange Mountain Music presents the world première recording of Philip Glass's opera Galileo Galilei featuring The Portland Opera Orchestra conducted by Anne Manson. In 2010, the Portland Opera and Anne Manson teamed with Glass' long-time producer Michael Riesman to produce the Glass masterpiece Orphee. The team reunited in 2012 during a run of performances in Portland to take on Glass' 2002 opera Galileo Galilei, with a libretto by Mary Zimmerman and Arnold Weinstein, featuring a roster of dynamic singers. The Opera draws from letters of Galileo and his family and various other documents to retrospectively journey through Galileo's life. It explores his religiosity as well as his break with the church, and expands into the greater relationship of science to both religion and art.
