Over in the UK, the Guardian has a short article by David Bowie in which the onetime Ziggy Stardust and Thin White Duke describes some of the contents of his iPod. His selections, as is usually the case with him, are eclectic, ranging from current rock bands to African pop to the avant-garde disco of the late Arthur Russell. He includes one operatic selection, from John Adams’s 1987 opera Nixon In China, which in March will receive its Canadian premiere courtesy of the Vancouver Opera.
