John Adams conducts Doctor Atomic at London's Barbican
John Adams returns to London’s Barbican Centre this week following his success there with the London Symphony Orchestra last December. This time, he conducts a complete concert performance of his opera Doctor Atomic on 25 April with the BBC Symphony Orchestra staged by Kenneth Richardson.
The performance heralds the end of a series of international appearances celebrating Adams’ 70th birthday, including concerts in Los Angeles, New York, St Louis, San Francisco and Hamburg. Adams completes his current period in Europe conducting a concert with Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw on 6 May.
