Nixon in China, now Anna Nicole; can you come up with another contemporary
story worthy of an opera?

I have two -

The story of Joseph P Kennedy and the conflict between his love for family, his love of women other than his wife and his desire for power.

The story of Jimmy Hoffa and his seduction by power.

3. The life of Sergio de Mello or Richard Holbrooke.
Diplomats with interesting lives!

Hillary Rodham Clinton is another one.

Lyndon Johnson.

Let's see. What else? The Balkans wars, definitely, and the impeachment of President Clinton. The election of 2000.

4. Would the impeachment of Clinton be a serious opera or a comedy?
I can imagine Mozart having a ball with the subject either way!
