The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat with pre-show panel discussion @Indianapolis Opera
SCIENCE+ART with the INDIANAPOLIS OPERA at the BUTLER UNIVERSITY SCHROTT CENTER FOR THE ARTS
The Indianapolis Opera presents The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, a one-act chamber opera by Michael Nyman adapted from the case study of the same name written by neurologist Oliver Sacks. The story focuses on a doctor’s investigation into the condition of a musician suffering from visual agnosia, or an inability to recognize objects, including his wife. Visit the Indianapolis Opera website for tickets and more information.
There will be pre-show panel discussions, “Understanding Brain-Based Diseases: A Catalyst for Community Dialogue,” at the Schrott Center starting two hours before each performance. These panels bring together doctors, scientists, social workers, and advocates from the Indianapolis area to discuss a wide range of issues related to treatment and care of individuals with neurological disease. Visit the Indianapolis Opera website for more information on panelists and topics.
No ticket required for pre-show panel discussions
