More Info



With this exclusive offer from Rewarding Times we are offering a premium ticket to ‘Nixon in China’ and the opportunity to attend a pre-show talk with members of the creative team from Wide Open Opera at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on Saturday 17th of May.

Following on from the fantastic 5-star success of Wagner’s Tristan & Isolde, Wide Open Opera mark their return to The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre with a production that is guaranteed to be the must see opera event of the summer. Set in Peking (Beijing) in February 1972, John Adam's ‘Nixon in China’ acts as a psychological insight into the political minds of East and West as US President Richard Nixon makes a ground-breaking visit to communist China.

Nixon in China brings together a stunning line-up of international and Irish singers and creative team. Directed by the original Vancouver Opera director Michael Cavanagh with the involvement of the original set, lighting, video and costume designers, the production also involves top Irish choreographer Jessica Kennedy (Junk Ensemble) and is conducted by Wide Open Opera Artistic Director, Fergus Sheil.

Buzzing with American optimism and depicting Nixon’s unprecedented journey don’t miss the opportunity to see the  most renowned opera of our generation live on the stage at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

Nixon in China is made possible with the support of The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon. The production is also supported by partnerships with the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.
