At the dawn of the nuclear age, scientists at Los Alamos prepare to test the first atomic bomb while pondering the massive destructive power of the force they will soon unleash. “A moving and compelling work of moral, as well as musical, grandeur” (Daily Telegraph), this compelling drama by John Adams captures the conflicted soul of an era.

Fully staged production with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in English with supertitles
