Hi, liked your entry on GG. I was looking for an outline of lis life, to settle an argument about whether he'd been imprisoned or executed. He was indeed a heroic figure, a champion of truth and knowledge. The American composer Philip Glass has composed an opera entitled Galileo Galilei, which is to be premiered in Chicago, Illinois on June 24th 2002. It's coming to the UK in November, I think, so I hope to see it then.
