Nixon in China, an original HGO commission and a pivotal piece of the modern opera repertoire, returns to HGO’s stage on the opera’s 30th anniversary.

Composer John Adams’ work focuses on President Richard M. Nixon’s 1972 peacemaking visit to China. By blending fact and fiction, the work presents an insightful and compassionate portrayal of a presidential figure often vilified.
