Based on the 1985 hijacking by Palestinian terrorists of the Mediterranean cruise ship Achille Lauro. Award-winning British film-maker Penny Woolcock, working with the composer, ingeniously reworked the original, using techniques afforded by film to imbue the narrative with realism. While the main action is shot on location in the Mediterranean, actual and recreated archive footage tells the broader story of the characters before and after the hijacking
The Death of Klinghoffer by John Adams( Recording )

La muerte de Klinghoffer es contada en un estilo muy diferente que las anteriores óperas de Adams. Aunque se basen en hechos históricos, Klinghoffer no siempre los trata de una forma narrativa tradicional, y los acontecimientos que vemos no son siempre los esperados. Varios acontecimientos importantes de la narrativa histórica - incluyendo la muerte de Klinghoffer de sí mismo - no se ven en el escenario, pero sólo un comentario a posteriori. Además, muchos de los personajes cantan sus versiones de la acción como recuerdos, como por ejemplo en el aria de apertura del capitán: "Fue justo después de 1:15" que narra la apariencia original de los secuestradores a bordo. Mientras tanto, cada escena termina con una serie en la que el coro reflexiona sobre los acontecimientos que han ocurrido. La ópera comienza con un preludio que consiste de dos de estos coros, una cantada por un coro de los palestinos exiliados y la otra por un coro de Judios exiliado

The first appearance of Alice Goodman's two internationally-renowned and controversial libretti, alongside one of her masterful translations. An NYRB Classics Original Nixon in China and The Death of Klinghoffer played a crucial role in bringing opera back to life as a contemporary art form, and they have been popular-and, in the case of Klinghoffer, highly controversial-ever since they were first staged by the director Peter Sellars in the eighties and nineties. Both operas were conceived from the start as collaborations between composer and writer, and their power is due as much to the dazzlingly constructed and deeply felt libretti of the poet Alice Goodman as they are to John Adams's music. Nixon in China is a story, at once heroic, comic, and unnerving, of men and women making history and of their different conceptions of what history is and what it means to makes it. Klinghoffer, by contrast, has at its center the tragedy of an innocent man condemned at the cost of his life to play a part in history. History Is Our Mother, which takes its title from a line sung by the title character in Nixon in China, brings Goodman's two libretti together for the first time in book form. Included alongside Goodman's no less inspired translation of Emanuel Schikaneder's famous libretto to The Magic Flute, these vivid dramas of character and searching meditations on fate are here revealed as among the most original, ambitious, and accomplished poetic achievements of our time
