The Standing Room reports on the last night

And so does Robert Gable.

Reviewers on Doctor Atomic:And in the blogosphere:In the blogosphere, but from writers who haven't yet seen Doctor Atomic:

  • Greg Sandow on relevance I'm not having any difficult imagining the relevance of an opera about science, politics, and conscience to today's world. Le Nozze di Figaro, an operatic comedy about droit du seigneur, manages to sell out theaters world over, too.

  • Steve Hicken at Listen, with interesting comments about the effects of the attention surrounding any new work by John Adams.

  • Tim Johnson on hype and relevance, plus there are comments worth reading by both Tim and a reader, Jim, who saw the premiere and was disappointed.

Final Update: Your best bet for tracking fallout in the blogosphere will be a new Google feature; it's in beta, but it works just fine as far as I can tell: Google blog search.

The Real Final Update, well, not quite: Additional opinions may be found at the Archives of Opera-l.
