The Death of Klinghoffer

The British stage premier of one of the most talked about operas of the past 20 years. John Adam”s passionate, moving and compelling opera is driven by the religious and political divides in the Middle East. The music is vivid and atmospheric, combining glorious orchestral sound with supremely lyrical vocal writing and striking choruses to briliant effect.
