Adams: Nixon In China (Nixon in China - with slipcase) (Naxos: 8.669022-24)



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
A longtime collaborator of John Adams and champion of his music, Marin Alsop directs this live recording of Opera Colorado's 25th Anniversary Celebration production of Nixon in China, presented at Denver's new Ellie Caulkins Opera House during the 2008 National Performing Arts Convention, and featuring an internationally recognized cast.

Alice Goodman's epic libretto and John Adams's distinctive music weave together a colourful fabric of actual events from President Nixon's historic visit to the People's Republic of China with intimate examinations of the opera's real life characters.

The spectacle, drama, humor and pathos of this masterpiece remain as compelling today as when the opera was premiered in 1987.

\[The] performance, brilliantly conducted by Marin Alsop and delivered by a strong cast led by baritone Robert Orth in the title role... Alsop, a proven master of Adams' style both early and late, led a dynamic performance... Conducting the Colorado Symphony, she shepherded her forces nimbly." San Francisco Chronicle concert review"
