Abstract

This music-analytical guide to John Adams's opera, Nixon in China presents detailed, in-depth analysis of the music tied to historical and political contexts. The opera captures an important moment in history and in international relations, and a close study of it from an interdisciplinary perspective provides fresh, compelling insights about the opera. With a heavy focus on analysis, the books shows how the music transcends its repetitive shell to become a hierarchically-rich and musically-compelling achievement. © Timothy A. Johnson 2011.
