National Endowment for the Arts awards Nixon in China
The Princeton Festival is excited to announce a prestigious grant from the NEA for our 2019 production of Nixon in China. This is the fifth NEA grant The Princeton Festival has received in its fifteen-year history. The substantial award will allow us to achieve our vision for John Adams’ incredible opera, and extend the impact of that vision to a broad audience.

Nixon in China imbues a world-changing political event with the emotional charge more commonly found in personal dramas and mythological stories. Its poetic libretto is set to exciting and expressive music. It is truly an opera for our times.
