Galileo, in association with t2, wraps up

So long, Galileo: The curtains came down on Anjan Dutt’s Bengali production Galileo on Saturday evening at Gyan Manch. This was the sixth and final show of the production. Dutt’s adaptation of Bertolt Brecht’s Galileo traced the life of the 17th century Italian scientist and astronomer, a historical drama that found resonance in contemporary times too. The maverick was brought to life by Dutt’s powerhouse performance as the man who pursues truth, and yet disavows it when mortal fears take over and his followers let him down. The music, scored by Neel Dutt, provided the interludes as well as the chorus. Anjan had also penned the lyrics. And as he took the final bow, the audience couldn’t help but ask for an encore, even as the entire theatre roared with applause. Pictures by Anindya Shankar Ray
