Kepler’s Trial is an opera that grew from the minds of a world-class creative team. It is based on the critically acclaimed book, The Astronomer and the Witch, by librettist and author Ulinka Rublack. At its heart is a small Renaissance statue of an ageing woman by an unknown artist. This statue, which is displayed in the V&A became an allegorical emblem for the opera, representing mothers, old age, and female struggles in the context of the witchcraft trails of Katherina Kepler.
