Granted I've seen my share of many operas and typically I'm not fond of contemporary work but in this instance, Dr. Atomic challenged what I knew about American history, the origin of the nuclear age at Los Alamos, and explored the depths of Robert Oppenheimer's confrontation with the moral consequences of his actions. If the opportunity presents itself again go see this performance. A live opera broadcast provides extreme close ups of the performers, interviews back stage and capturing a truly unique art form. I'm looking forward to the next performance in this year's broadcasts series.
