#ThrowbackThursday 15 years ago, San Francisco Opera presented the world premiere of composer John Adams' Doctor Atomic. Seen here are baritone Gerald Finley as J. Robert Oppenheimer and bass-baritone Eric Owens as General Leslie Groves with the San Francisco Opera Chorus and supernumeraries. Oppenheimer and Groves were key figures of The Manhattan Project which developed nuclear weapons during WW II. We recognize that this week is the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings.
