Prolific composer who draws from sources in pop music or the classical styles of yesterday and today, John Adams is also a conductor whose stage appearances are as rare as they are selective. It is therefore with even greater pleasure that Dijon will welcome him at the head of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Discover yet another side of John Adams, composer and conductor, on the stage of the Dijon Opera. Strongly influenced by jazz and rock, his music gives the general public a whole new way to appreciate contemporary music! Along with the London Symphony Orchestra, enter the engaging universe of John Adams.
