Metropolitan Opera Star Eric Owens Poses With General Groves Prior To Los Alamos Concert Performance

Metropolitan Opera star Eric Owens poses with General Groves prior to his Thursday performance for the Los Alamos Concert Association. Owens created the role of General Groves in the San Francisco Opera’s world premiere of Dr. Atomic, an opera about the Manhattan Project by composer John Adams. He subsequently made his Metropolitan Opera debut in that role. In September, he sang the title role in the Met’s smash hit revival of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. His performance in Los Alamos with distinguished pianist Jeremy Denk was a tour-de-force account of Schubert’s monumental song cycle, Winterreise. Photo by Peter LaDelfe
