Last year I devoted the month of February, the month of LOVE, to operatic pairs. I'm continuing that tradition this year, and focusing on 20th century opera. My first pair is from John Adams's *Nixon in China:*
Diva: Madame Mao
Mensch: Pat Nixon
These clips are from the 2012 Théâtre du Châtelet production, with Sumi Jo as Madame Mao and June Anderson as Pat Nixon.
