From serious political discussions to a toast-filled banquet scene where every toast tries to outdo another, with Chinese dancers and a fantasy scene with Kissinger, Nixon in China explores an heroic gesture by a sitting American President towards a burgeoning world power. Join us for a whirlwind diplomatic trip which changed history and an opera that has risen to the top rank of 20th century American operas and is arguably one of the most influential of the last few decades. Our exceptional cast includes the company debut of Franco Pomponi as Nixon and Chad Shelton as Mao Tse-Tung and returning SDO favorites Kathleen Kim as Madame Mao Tse-Tung and Richard Paul Fink as Henry Kissinger.
