John Adams: Nixon in China - Mao Tse-Tung

Los Angeles Philharmonic

John Adams’ audacious first opera turned the music world on its head, creating a whole new genre, dubbed “CNN opera.” Unlike most operas written since, Nixon has entered the rarefied pantheon of the international repertoire. With Adams himself conducting and the acclaimed Elkhanah Pulitzer directing, this innovative production promises to be historic in its own right.
