"Alex Ross" "Doctor Atomic"--You're Expecting a Painted Superhero, Aren't You?

My admiration for composer John Adams was hinted at here, and I was very curious to hear the score to his new opera, Doctor Atomic, already. But after reading Alex Ross' wonderful article on the opera's genesis in The New Yorker (not, alas, available on-line--but do read Ross' blog entry about the article, here), I am positively chomping at the bit to hear it. Let's hope that Nonesuch doesn't tarry.

Until Whenever
