John Adams wrote his 2006 opera for, he says, "a time of global awareness." The composer drew inspiration from Mozart's Magic Flute and ancient Indian folk-tales; the libretto, co-written by Adams and director Peter Sellars, is in English and Spanish. The New Yorker calls the work "opulent, dreamlike, fiercely lyrical"; the Los Angeles Times calls this "a terrific recording."
