The Tony Award—winning play that soars on the intersection of technology and paintings, Copenhagen is an explosive re-imagining of the mysterious wartime assembly among Nobel laureates to debate the atomic bomb.
In 1941 the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made a clandestine journey to Copenhagen to determine his Danish counterpart and buddy Niels Bohr. Their interact on quantum mechanics and the uncertainty precept had revolutionized atomic physics. yet now the realm had replaced and the 2 males have been on contrary aspects in an international conflict. Why Heisenberg went to Copenhagen and what he desired to say to Bohr are questions that experience vexed historians ever considering the fact that. In Michael Frayn’s bold, fiercely clever, and bold new play Heisenberg and Bohr meet once more to debate the intricacies of physics and to think about the metaphysical—the very essence of human motivation.
