WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

John Adams' moving and controversial The Death of Klinghoffer chronicles the two days in 1985 that Palestinian hijackers seized the cruise ship Achille Lauro, terrorizing its passengers and crew and murdering the wheelchair-bound American Jew, Leon Klinghoffer. In this staged concert version of the 1991 opera, the tragic events come to vivid life through a prismatic mix of historical narrative, recollections, and commentary.
