Putting Nixon In China To Bed

A warm thanks to everyone who came out to the Canadian premiere of Nixon in China!

VO has been overwhelmed by all the support and enthusiasm for our production of John Adams's contemporary opera. We're pleased to have brought it to Vancouver audiences and thrilled that everyone was open to giving modern opera a chance. Just wait to you see what we're cooking up for the world premiere of Lillian Alling!

Here at Vancouver Opera, we've been sleeping, breathing and living Nixon in China since the beginning of this year. It'll be hard to put this production behind us.

But we have photos and many nice comments to help us remember it all: the beautiful people (that means you!) who came out, and the hard work and talent it took to design a brand-spankin' new production (one that will make its way to other opera houses around the world). Remember, you saw it here first!

Eventually, all the catchy Nixon in China numbers that developed into earworms will be but fond memories.

A heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make Nixon in China a success!
