Press Quotes  
“Oppenheimer begins to sing, pouring out his soul in stark, anguished, cantorial phrases. The words – ‘Batter my heart, three-person'd God’ – are John Donne's, the music is the creation of America's greatest living composer, and the scene compresses all the terror and fascination of the opera's subject into eight minutes of wrenching, sinewy musical genius… a major addition to the operatic repertory of this new century.”
San Francisco Chronicle
