American Master. Unstoppable Force.
John Adams is one of our greatest living composers, continually refreshing his art and ever pushing himself toward more ambitious goals. The LA Phil has enjoyed a long and close relationship with Adams, particularly since 2009 when he became our Creative Chair. We are proud and thrilled to mark his personal milestone with several of his landmark works, including the moving nativity oratorio El Niño and his breakthrough opera Nixon in China, semi-staged and conducted by Adams himself. He will also conduct the Green Umbrella “Four World Premieres” concert on October 1. Join us as we open our subscription season with Absolute Jest, Adams’ recent transmogrification of iconic Beethoven motives.
