Contemporary American Operas

Add To Wish List + £29.99 - Out of stock

This special set brings together three of America's most lauded contemporary operas: John Adams's Dr Atomic, a riveting morality drama centring on J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists at the test site of the world's first atomic bomb explosion in New Mexico; The Perfect American, Philip Glass's striking portrayal of the 'real' Walt Disney, based on a series of reflections and memories which take place during the icon's final cancer-ridden months; and the 2001 cinematic film version of Trouble in Tahiti, Bernstein's one-act satire on American suburban married life, its jazz- and musical comedy-inspired score then a path-breaking fusion of lyric art with popular entertainment. Consummate direction (with librettist Peter Sellars at the helm for Dr Atomic), compelling designs, brilliant casting and stand-out performances - among them Gerald Finley's Oppenheimer and Christopher Purves's Walt Disney - unite these three very different works which collectively reflect the astonishing variety of style and form that characterises 20th-century opera.
