I want to point everyone to Mark Adamo's excellent and well-reasoned essay on John Adams' difficult opera The Death of Klinghoffer. This piece is always incendiary, for many reasons, and I think Mark (as always!) brilliantly articulates why. Like the piece or not, agree with the politics or not, or even agree or disagree with the particular nimbus of criticism that surrounds that opera, Mark's intelligent and nuanced vivisection considers the work in a wonderfully specific way and ought to be read.
