Seal Of Approval

This past weekend, The Guardian UK asked David Bowie what was on his iPod playlist. Guess what was one of his song choices?

Soldiers of Heaven hold the Sky from Act 1, Scene 1 of the Nixon in China opera by John Adams.

Asked why this selection was on his playlist, Bowie replied "Adams's minimalism disguises the rich romanticism of his melodies. Ever ascending, rising through the clouds."

The Thin White Duke is liking the Nixon in China! Can we say that's SO cool?!

And it just so happens that Vancouver Opera will be performing Nixon in China in March!
