Doctor Atomic

Could there be a more perfect fusion of opera and venue than Doctor Atomic at The Santa Fe Opera? First performed in 2005, Doctor Atomic reunited composer John Adams with librettist/stage director Peter Sellars, whose earlier collaborations include Nixon in China and The Death of Klinghoffer. This new production, staged by Sellars, also marks the first John Adams work to be performed by The Santa Fe Opera.
