The Death of Klinghoffer is an opera pulled straight from the headlines. Loosely based on the 1985 Palestinian Liberation Front hijacking of a cruise ship and subsequent murder of Jewish-American passenger Leon Klinghoffer, the provocative opera has been called "revolutionary" by Newsweek. Composer John Adams (Nixon in China, Doctor Atomic) and writer Alice Goodman delve into the complicated conflict between Palestinians and Jews and aim to shine a light on heroism in ordinary people. The Death of Klinghoffer is sure to spark plenty of conversation with its controversial telling of events. Learn More

I attended STOMP and I loved this event, my two daughters did as well. The performance was outstanding and better than I anticipated. The group entertained us with their talents of making rhythms from brooms, plastic bags and so much more. The group never spoke but their characters were distinctive and you will laugh.There was also crowd participation which makes it more exciting and the tickets even more valuable. We were very entertained the entire show.
<p>The international percussion sensation with eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments—matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps—to fill the stage with magnificent rhythm. This returning percussive hit brings some new surprises, with sections of the show updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans.</p>
