Thousands lived to sleep…it’s not a fairy tale, but the incredible true story of Dr. Oliver Sacks, a young neurologist faced with treating victims of a mysterious sleeping-sickness epidemic of the early 20th century, a phenomenon of history nearly forgotten. Awakenings visits Sacks’s journey of perseverance and compassion that brought his ‘frozen’ patients back to being – but not to the world they left behind. With our current trials, this distinct retelling of the possibility of new life is even more resonant today.
Join BMOP in partnership with Odyssey Opera for the East Coast premiere of Awakenings, a moving tale of hope, loss, and transformation.
