Dr Atomic is magnificent

I had tickets to see this minimalist opera at the colosseum in London.

It opens with a fantastic stage set incorperating the choir in boxes each one with a picture of a scientist working on the 1st atomic bomb.

Later in the production indians in full tribal dress replace them for a fabulous choral scene.

By the end tension is added to the threatening sounds and atmosphere by the props appearing to

There is so much to see and like in this opera. The orchestra and sound effects. The stage sets. The voices and of course the story. It is still possible to get tickets for the show and it is well worth anyones time and the relatively small price of the tickets.
