I wouldn't have thought that I'd ever find myself commenting on a Met cinecast here, but Russell Braun's performance as Chou En-lai in today's broadcast of Nixon in China was so exceptional that I just have to. This was the most intense and moving performance I've seen him give. The beauty of the voice, the impeccable musicianship were there as always, but how he inhabited the character of Chou opened up an additional dimension. The final close-up will stay with me for a long time. Thank you, Russell.
