Awakenings – Opera Theatre of St. Louis
An eye-opening tale of love, loss, and longing.
Based on the true story of Dr. Oliver Sacks, Awakenings is a moving story of memories, loss, and life rediscovered. For more than forty years, thousands succumbed to a mysterious sleeping sickness, rendering them as immobile and voiceless as living statues. Decades later, a brilliant young doctor discovered a revolutionary treatment to bring his patients back to life…but with the challenge of finding their place in a now-unfamiliar world.
