“Awakenings”, Tobias Picker’s Sixth Opera, Premieres at the Opera Theatre of St. Louis in June 2020

Picker’s sixth opera, Awakenings, set to a libretto by Aryeh Lev Stollman and based on Dr. Oliver Sacks's book of the same name, is premiered at the Opera Theatre of St. Louis (OTSL) in June 2020, with James Robinson directing and Roberto Kalb conducting.

From OTSL:

"Imagine watching the world pass you by…but being unable to do anything about it. Such was the fate of thousands who succumbed to a mysterious sleeping sickness, rendering them immobile and voiceless for more than forty years. As time went on, daughters grew up without their mothers, husbands remarried, and mothers wasted away from grief. Decades later, a brilliant young doctor discovered a revolutionary treatment to bring his patients back to life in a world they no longer recognized. Based on the true story of Dr. Oliver Sacks, Awakenings is a moving story of memories, loss, and life rediscovered."
