Bela Bartok’s “Bluebeard’s Castle” and John Adams’ “Doctor Atomic Symphony”

Conducted by Anthony Barrese

• Sunday, October 22, 2 pm
• Friday, October 27th, 7:30pm
• Sunday, October 29th, 2pm

At the National Hispanic Cultural Center Albuquerque Journal Theatre

Oppenheimer the film has ignited a fervor of interest in the creators of the atomic bomb, their personalities, and the complex moral and psychological problems they faced. Opera Southwest presents the thrilling Doctor Atomic Symphony, adapted from the opera.

Doctor Atomic is an ideal yet unexpected pairing with Bluebeard’s Castle, a chilling one-act opera based on the dark fairytale of Judith (Andrea Hill), the young new wife of the menacing Duke Bluebeard (Justin Hopkins), who unlocks the seven forbidden doors in the Duke’s castle and is ultimately confronted by the women he has already loved.

Although on the surface these are quite different works, there are many unexpected musical, symbolic, psychological, and even historical intersections that await your discovery.

Friday, October 20, 7:30 PM

The daughter and student of the legendary Ravi Shankar, sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar is deeply rooted in Indian classical music and has blazed a singular path that encompasses inventive arrangements, sensitive virtuosity, and a neoclassical approach.
Shankar’s tour features a new quintet of musicians with whom she has carved out a multifaceted and dynamic sound as they perform music from her newly-released mini-album alongside thoroughly shaken-up, reinterpreted gems from her previous releases. The quintet, representing the very best of the thriving London music scene, includes clarinetist Arun Ghosh, drummer-composer Sarathy Korwar, Carnatic percussionist Pirashanna Thevarajah, and bassist Tom Farmer.
