Atomic Film Festival screens 'Dr. Atomic'

-A A +A

“Dr. Atomic,” the opera by John Adams with libretto by Peter Sellars, is finally coming to Los Alamos in the film version of the Metropolitan Opera production. It will be presented Sunday by the Los Alamos Historical Museum as part of the Atomic Film Festival.
In preparation for this first presentation of the opera in the real-life setting of its story, PAC-8 is broadcasting the 2006 lecture that was delivered by Karlyn Ward, Ph.D., LCSW, in Fuller Lodge in conjunction with the San Francisco premiere of “Dr. Atomic.” This talk lends itself to a greater appreciation of the opera and its libretto.
Ward is an analyst member of The C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and has written and lectured about the relationship of the psyche and music. In her Los Alamos talk, she offered deep and interesting insights into the story of “Dr. Atomic” and the music interpretation.
The opera will be shown as it was performed in New York in a film presentation at 2 p.m. To hear the talk previous to attending the viewing of the opera, tune in at 7 p.m. Friday on PAC-8.  
“Dr. Atomic” is a powerful production. Run time is 2 hours, 51 minutes, followed by a discussion facilitated by special guest Lois Rudnick, Professor Emerita of American Studies at UMass Boston.
