UCA presents HD broadcast of Dr. Atomic

The Metropolitan Opera’s performance of Dr. Atomic will be broadcast in high definition at noon on Saturday, Nov. 8, at UCA’s Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall.

John Adams’ Dr. Atomic is part of the series Live from the Met at UCA, sponsored by UCA’s College of Fine Arts and Communication.

Adams’ daring contemporary opera examines events leading up to the testing of the first atomic bomb in the New Mexico desert in 1945. The title refers to J. Robert Oppenheimer, the brilliant physicist and director of the Manhattan Project.

Approximately 200 seats are available for each performance. Tickets are $15 for the public and $5 for students with valid I.D. To order, call UCA Ticket Central at (501) 450-3265 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit www.uca.edu/tickets.

The series is made possible by UCA’s arts fee. For more information, call the Office of the Dean, College of Fine Arts and Communication, at (501) 450-3293 or e-mail MCastens@uca.edu, or visit www.uca.edu/cfac or www.metopera.org.
