John Adams’s Antony and Cleopatra

Antony and Cleopatra, the latest opera by John Adams, is receiving its world premiere this month at San Francisco Opera. Tomorrow is opening night and the start of the company’s centennial season.

Here’s a preview I wrote for Opera Now‘s September issue, in which the composer discusses his decision to set Shakespeare’s love tragedy.

[San Francisco Opera will livestream the performance of 18 September at 2pm PST. Tickets are $27.50.  
PLEASE PURCHASE YOUR LIVESTREAM TICKET AT LEAST 60 MINUTES PRIOR TO CURTAIN.]
