3.0 out of 5 stars Good Performance; Not John Adams' Best July 29 2013
By Quinbus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The first John Adams opera I experienced was his marvelous "Nixon in China." That inspired me to try his later work. "Klinghoffer" seemed more of an oratorio, musically dense and opaque to me. "Dr Atomic" I would place somewhere between the two. No doubt I'm a philistine, but the music is not as memorable as that of "Nixon in China," which I often go back to. On the other hand, I enjoyed it more than "Klinghoffer."

5.0 out of 5 stars Trinity lives! March 27 2011
By Erik C. Pihl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It's a scary time for the scientists in Los Alamos, New Mexico. They are close to finishing a project that no one really knows whether it will end well or not. John Adams, admittedly not one of my favorite composers, has captured the anxiety, tension and confusion of this time and place with remarkable accuracy. (He had access to some of the, until now, classified material from that time.) The music drives the scenes with a relentlessness that matches what is being worked on. Time flows like a current that cannot be opposed and the characters each respond in their ideosyncratic ways. This is a piece of American history that needs more exposure. A recently-made documentary "Gate" (pronounced 'gah-tay') shows an ending for the situation of the opera that is well worth considering as a companion piece for this work. Both are well worth adding to the collection of anyone interested in finding out what led up to the flight of the 'Enola Gay."

An amazing opera. Not only does the performance command your attention, it even teaches some physics.
