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.
