Nixon In China - Spotify | Thespie

John Adams’ three act opera inspired by an important moment in history and in international relations - US President Richard Nixon's visit to China in 1972. The language of the opera is true to its source, but more evocative than the words spoken in 1972-due to Alice Goodman's marvelous, poetic libretto. And the music transcends its repetitive shell to become a hierarchically-rich and musically-compelling achievement.
