Added to MyNight

Great Hall, Town Hall

Combining pulsating energy and soaring lyricism, with influences from big-band to Wagner, John Adams’s Nixon in China relates a compelling story of two of the 20th century’s most controversial figures – Richard Nixon and Mao Zedong – and the meeting that opened a new era in East-West relations. Admired for Alice Goodman’s poetically eloquent libretto and Adams’ magnificent score, which encapsulate the momentous scale of the historic event, Nixon in China has become an iconic piece of operatic writing.
