The Hat: Arendt Meets Heidegger is an opera by composer Karen Siegel and librettist Zsuzsanna Ardó that imagines the powerful intellectual, emotional and sexual attraction in the first meetings of Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger, influential thinkers of the 20th century who sustained a relationship despite their disparate perspectives and backgrounds (Arendt was a Jew, and Heidegger joined the Nazi party). A story of political and social relevance, The Hat is both serious and funny, engaging its audience, whether they are familiar with Arendt’s and Heidegger’s ideas or not.
