John Adams’s groundbreaking work vividly brings to life President Nixon’s 1972 visit to communist China. Peter Sellars’s Met production, based on his 1987 world-premiere staging, features choreography by Mark Morris and stars James Maddalena as Nixon, Robert Brubaker as Chairman Mao, Janis Kelly as First Lady Pat Nixon, Russell Braun as Chinese Premier Chou En-lai, and Kathleen Kim as Chiang Ch’ing, Mao’s wife. From the pomp of the public displays to the intimacy of the protagonists most private moments, Adams, Sellars, and librettist Alice Goodman reveal the real characters behind the headlines in this landmark American opera.

The way sunshine works as an antiseptic, freeing your stories from where they are held in the body and nervous system and holding them up to the light can help you tame and understand them. Read aloud and received by loving hearts will decrease any sense of separateness you might be feeling at this time. Please join me for this two-part online workshop where--through such tools as metaphor, sensory exploration, scene setting, and personification--you can access the stories most important to you right now. All levels welcome. No previous writing experience necessary.

When

7:30pm

The Metropolitan Opera

Director Nicholas Hytner, who made his Met debut with this production, brings out all the passionate intensity that is at the heart of Verdi’s monumental drama. Don Carlo (Roberto Alagna), the Spanish crown prince, and Elizabeth of Valois (Marina Poplavskaya), daughter of the King of France, fall in love, only to be torn apart by international politics when Carlo’s father, King Philip II (Ferruccio Furlanetto), decides to marry Elizabeth himself. Carlo’s friend, Rodrigo (Simon Keenlyside), plays a dangerous game, balancing his political aims with the trust of his monarch. And when the beautiful Princess Eboli (Anna Smirnova) discovers her love for Don Carlo is not returned, her revenge terribly backfires. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the Met orchestra and chorus.

Phone: (212) 738-0001

Price

$45.00

When

5:30pm-7:30pm

Shakespeare & Co.

This reading-intensive, writing-focused workshop will look at matters of the spirit, soul, or inner life—however we may define the human (humane?) mechanism at work when facing huge joy or huge dread in this world and in imagined worlds. How do we, as writers, face the kind of work that is at once essential and complex in an intimate and personal way? What does it mean for the length of that particular work? We will look at both long-ish poems and short poems to see how breadth or a compressed sensibility necessitates a deliberate and measured way of taking in the world. Readings will include Louise Glück, Jack Gilbert, Lucille Clifton, Gerald Stern, Nazim Hikmet, Franz Wright, Jean Valentine, and others.

Michael Klein is a five-time finalist and two-time recipient of a Lambda Literary Award and received a poetry fellowship from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. He is the author of several collections of poetry, including When I Was a Twin (2015) and The Talking Day (2013), and several books of prose. He has taught at Sarah Lawrence College and, for 20 years, in the MFA program at Goddard College in Vermont. He currently teaches at Hunter College in New York City.
