ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

In February 1972, US President Richard Nixon traveled to China to meet with Mao Zedong. In the electric context of the Vietnam War and the Cold War, this rapprochement marked a turning point in Sino-American relations. A major figure in contemporary music, John Adams made this event the subject of his first opera. A political and human drama, Nixon in China addresses the political thaw favored by “ping-pong diplomacy”, born of the invitation of American table players by their Chinese counterparts, a year before their president’s trip. A heady score, where the pulsations and repetitions specific to musical minimalism intertwine with melodic lines of great lyricism. For its entry into the repertoire of the Opéra national de Paris, the work has been entrusted to the director Valentina Carrasco, who underlines the importance and mediating power of Chinese national sport in history: “ Friendship comes first , the competition afterwards”.
