After four years and the loss of 600,000 lives, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to his Union counterpart, General Ulysses S. Grant, in Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia, bringing the Civil War to an end. The intense emotions of this landmark day and the historic weeks leading up to it are compellingly conveyed by the hypnotic music of Philip Glass in this world premiere. Directed by Academy Award winner Christopher Hampton, 'Appomattox' portrays a powerful personal drama about two proud men during the turning point in American history.
