General Information

  • Production title :The Death of Klinghoffer - MET (2014)
  • Creation date :2014
  • Work - Composer :The Death of Klinghoffer - John Adams
  • Opera house :The Metropolitan Opera.


In what many John Adams admirers consider his greatest operatic composition, the Met’s new production premieres almost 30 years after the events chronicled in this work about the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship and the horrific killing of one of its passengers. Klinghoffer overwhelmed audiences when it premiered just a few years after the tragic incident; now it finally arrives at the Met—the third work by Adams (Doctor Atomic, Nixon in China) to be staged here in the last seven years. Paulo Szot stars in the leading role, and David Robertson conducts this powerful new production by director Tom Morris (War Horse).

Co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and English National Opera
