The new work is based on the book of the same name by Dr. Oliver Sacks, which tells the true story of Dr. Sacks’s astounding treatment of the great sleeping-sickness pandemic, encephalitis lethargica, which swept across the globe in the early twentieth century.

Awakenings has been commissioned by Opera Theatre of Saint Louis and will receive its world premiere at the company in June 2020.
