John Adams's first opera Nixon In China, produced by Peter Sellars, with libretto by Alice Goodman, about the visit of Richard Nixon to China in 1972, where he met with Mao Zedong and other Chinese officials.
Act I Opening -
The opera begins at Beijing Airport. As the soldiers wait, an airplane taxis and lands on the stage - the Nixons and Henry Kissinger disembark and are greeted by Chou Enlai. As Nixon is introduced to various Chinese officials by Chou, he sings of his hopes and fears for his historic visit.

Quote from Lyrics: (Nixon 尼克遜)"News, news, news, news, news -- has a... has a...has a... has a kind of mystery has a...has a... has a kind of mystery ...... Who, who, who, who are our enemies? Who, who, who, who are our friends?"
