On September 30, Opus Arte releases the much-anticipated DVD of John Adams’ Doctor Atomic

September 12, 2008

Directed by Peter Sellars and recorded live at Het Muziektheater in Amsterdam in June 2007, the superb cast includes baritone Gerald Finley as J. Robert Oppenheimer and soprano Jessica Rivera as Kitty Oppenheimer.

“Doctor Atomic came across as the most complex and inventive of Mr. Adams’s works, an engrossing operatic drama, even though very little happens. Yet by the end the entire world has changed forever.”
- Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

On September 30, Opus Arte releases John Adams’ Doctor Atomic (OA0998D), in a production from the Het Musietheater in Amsterdam in June 2007. Directed for television by its librettist/director and Erasmus Prize-winner Peter Sellars, Doctor Atomic is John Adams’ and Peter Sellars’ fifth work in almost 20 years of artistic collaboration.
