SYNOPSIS

The British dramatist and writer, Michael Frayn, received a Tony Award for Best Play in the year 2000 for Copenhagen, one of the most lauded and performed pieces of theatre in recent years. On this occasion, the work will be directed by Claudio Tolcachir.

The play relates the meeting that took place in the Nazi-occupied Danish capital in 1941 between the great Danish scientist, Niels Bohr, and his former student, Werner Heisenberg, a representative of the Nazi establishment. The two were enemies, due to the situation between the two nations during the Second World War. Master and disciple, played here by Emilio Gutiérrez Caba and Carlos Hipólito, respectively, tackle the ethical problem of using advances in theoretical physics to develop nuclear weapons for armed conflict.

Much conjecture exists regarding this mysterious meeting, which many have interpreted as being decisive in terms of tipping the balance of the war in favour of the Allies, effectively preventing the Germans from creating an atom bomb. For reasons that are not established in the history books, these two giants of world science broke all links for evermore after this meeting.
