Description: NCM Fathom presents an encore performance of Adams's Nixon in China in select theatres on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 at 6:30 PM in all time zones. "All of my operas have dealt on deep psychological levels with our American mythology," says composer John Adams, who conducts the Met premiere of his most famous opera. "The meeting of Nixon and Mao is a mythological moment in world history, particularly American history." Acclaimed director and longtime Adams collaborator Peter Sellars makes his Met debut with this groundbreaking 1987 work, an exploration of the human truths beyond the headlines surrounding President Nixon's 1972 encounter with Communist China. Baritone James Maddalena stars in the title role.
