It is as much about the private moments as the public, about the wives as much as the husbands, and about what we choose to remember as much as what actually happened...

Famed for giving minimalism a human face, Adams mixes a huge range of sounds in his eclectic score. Pre-recorded electronics sit alongside live passages echoing Wagner and Johann Strauss; jazz references alongside big band sounds that evoke the 1930s of Nixon’s youth. Acclaimed Portuguese conductor Joana Carneiro leads an exciting cast including American baritone Eric Greene, Swedish soprano Julia Sporsén (Ariadne auf Naxos 2018), British tenor Mark Le Brocq (Anthropocene 2019) and South Korean soprano Hye-Youn Lee (La bohème 2017).

Running time approx. 3 hrs 30 mins

Sung in English with English supertitles
