Opera Quiz: Which John Adams Opera Is It?

By David Salazar

When it comes to American opera, few composers have had quite the impact that John Adams has.

Throughout his career as an opera composer, Adams has examined how history and myth come together in the collective conscious to impact society. As such, many of his operas have proven controversial, though some quite long-lasting.

For this week’s quiz, we take stock of his operatic works, which while not as many as other major modern composers (i.e. Philip Glass), are no less essential to the modern opera lover.

As always, enjoy!
