"Doctor Atomic"

"Those who most long for peace now pour their lives on war."
Kitty Oppenheimer [played by Sasha Cooke]

Okay, opera is not for car crashes, no superheroes fighting a city's evil elements, no computer graphic images but it does have tragedy and much introspection and I suspect that the current production of "Doctor Atomic" is dripping with personal angst...existential dilemmas--annihilation of thousands of humans.

"The Terror and Attraction of Science, Put to Song"
