The Death of Klinghoffer
Composer: John Adams

Librettist: Alice Goodman, Alice Goodman
Synopsis
The cruise liner Achille Lauro has been hijacked by four Palestinian men. A waiter has been shot, the ship's engines have been shut down, and the first officer has a gun pointed at his head. The Captain encourages the passengers, Americans, Britons, and Jews, to remain calm. The Captain is guarded on the bridge by Mamoud, who sings of his memories. The ship awaits permission to dock at the Syrian port of Tartus. The passengers have been moved to a platform where a helicopter might be able to land. Leon Klinghoffer, an American Jew, is confined to a wheelchair and is unable to be lifted onto the platform. Omar, another Palestinian, invokes the holy death he longs for. To emphasize the seriousness of their claims, the Palestinians shoot Klinghoffer and throw his body over the side of the ship. The Captain informs the authorities of the death and the possibility of further deaths of hostages. Molqi decides that no further killing is necessary, and negotiations with authorities commence. It is agreed that the ship will proceed to Alexandria, where the Palestinians will be allowed to disembark. The Captain informs Mrs. Klinghoffer of her husband's death.
