Yeltsin in Texas, which opens Opera in the Heights' New Works Festival 2020, riffs on the idea of John Adams’ Nixon in China, but is far from serious in nature. This comedic chamber opera, with music by Evan Mack and libretto by Josh Maguire, dramatizes the unlikely but true story of Russian president Boris Yeltsin's visit to a Houston supermarket and the eye-opening experience that shatters his view of communism.
