The Metropolitan Opera Live in HD

Did you know that the Met has simulcasts?

I didn't.

Well, they do. And I've got tickets to one.

We're going to drive to Lakewood, Colorado, a three hour trip one way on Saturday, November 8, 2008 to see the Met premiere of Doctor Atomic,

John Adams’s contemporary masterpiece explores a momentous episode of modern history: the creation of the atomic bomb. Director Penny Woolcock makes her Met debut with this gripping story that changed the course of history. Baritone Gerald Finley plays J. Robert Oppenheimer, the title character.

We just spent time in Santa Fe, the check-in point for the physicists going out to Los Alamos during WWII and Steve's just read 109 East Palace, which takes its title from the actual check in location so we thought it might be topical to see Doctor Atomic.

Thanks to Aunt Pat for cluing us in!
