The heavens changed and he was the first to notice. Astronomer and alchemist Tycho Brahe’s meticulous observations altered our understanding of the skies forever. Join us for an exploration of Brahe’s fascinating life and times, featuring music from the cosmopolitan cities of 16th-century Leipzig, Basel, and Prague, and the world premiere of a new “concert opera” about Tycho Brahe by Canadian composer Alex Eddington, with cymbalom master Richard Moore, video artist Laura Warren, and director Tyler Seguin.
