Where in the world is Peter?

Me, worry? (Photo by Terrence McCarthy)

So it is the evening before the world premiere of Dr. Atomic.

And where in the world is Peter Sellars, the production's co-creator, director and librettist? Having a triple heart attack worrying over last-minute changes [p.s., there were many] and assorted details that could derail the epic premiere?

Of course not. Peter was actually in Berkeley, at the performance of Mark Morris' choreographed opera, Virgil Thomson's Four Saints in Three Acts, in appreciative support of Morris' dancers.

Looking surprisingly refreshed and relaxed, Peter greeted fans and friends alike with his usual warmth, chatting casually with anyone who approached him. "Get ready!" -- was his mischievous reply whenever the topic of Dr. Atomic came up.
