Product description

Product Description

Nixon in China the Blu-ray is the 2012 performance by the Metropolitan Opera of John Adams’ three act opera inspired by US President Richard Nixon's visit to China in 1972. The Met’s production, staged by Adams’ longtime collaborator Peter Sellars, stars James Maddalena as Richard Nixon, a role he created at the opera’s world premiere in 1987 and has since performed at international leading opera houses, including the English National Opera, Netherlands Opera, and Brooklyn Academy of Music. The opera’s libretto is by American poet Alice Goodman, who also collaborated with Adams and Sellars on The Death of Klinghoffer. Nixon in China was recorded and broadcast live in cinemas around the world as part of The Met: Live in HD on February 12, 2011.
