Met Opera 2010-11: Adams' Nixon in China

(New Production)

SAT FEBRUARY 26 at 11:30am SUN FEBRUARY 27 at 1:00pm

In February 1972, Nixon traveled to China for talks with Chinese leaders Chairman Mao Tse-tung and Premier Chau En-lai. Nixon's trip was the first high-level contact between the United States and the People's Republic of China in more than twenty years, and it ushered in a new era of relations between Washington and Beijing. “The meeting of Nixon and Mao is a mythological moment in world history, particularly American history,” says Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, John Adams, whose groundbreaking opera Nixon in China was inspired by this important moment in diplomatic relations. Peter Sellars makes his Met debut with this groundbreaking work.
