Performers and production crew from John Adams’ Nixon in China, this year’s Fifteenth Anniversary Princeton Festival opera, will share their personal experiences.
Attendees at this refreshing and stimulating forum will hear stars and staff alike recount the pleasures and perils faced both on stage and off as the artists bring the opera to life for its opening performance. The Artists’ Round Table offers a rare opportunity to meet the artists up close and hear in their own voices how they develop their roles, interpretations and insights.
The event is free and open to the public. Visitor parking is available in the Seminary’s Library parking area. A reception follows.
