Tick Tock Mao
This is tres cool. Our Communications Manager, Selina, is sporting a new accessory around the office. And it happens to go very well with the upcoming Nixon in China opera!
Bought in the back alleys of Shanghai with a lot of haggling by a "fixer" for a non-speaking foreigner, this nifty little "Chairman Mao" wind-up watch not only keeps time, BUT has the added feature of the Chairman's arm waving at you with every passing second!
What a great way to be reminded that we're a mere 7 weeks away from the Nixon in China opening (March 13, 16, 18, 20).
This show is going to be HOT! Vancouver Opera will be performing John Adams' masterpiece in March. Toronto's Canadian Opera Company will be performing Nixon in China February 2011, followed by San Francisco Opera Summer 2012.
Want to get your hands on tickets? Speak to the good people at our box office at 604-683-0222. Before time runs out.
