Nixon in China at The Metropolitan Opera

Renowned American composer John Adams presents Nixon in China at The Metropolitan Opera. In three acts, the performance follows Nixon and his wife on their 1972 visit to China as the president meets with Mao Zedong and his officials and the first lady makes tours of rural China. With dialogue and music sung in English, the New York Times calls Nixon in China “musically enthralling and theatrically dazzling.”
