A timely, controversial work of grand proportions, The Gospel According To The Other Mary is a new, full-scale reimagining of the Bach oratorio from composer John Adams and iconoclast writer/director Peter Sellars.

Adams and Sellars ’ previous collaborations included Nixon In China, the most-performed American opera since Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, and Dr. Atomic, an opera about the invention of the atomic bomb.

Focusing on the often marginalized perspectives of Mary Magdalene and Martha, The Gospel According To The Other Mary sets Biblical characters and events, including the resurrection of Lazarus and the passion of Christ, in a powerfully political, contemporary light.

As with the nativity oratorio El Niño (a response to Handel’s Messiah), and the opera Dr. Atomic , the libretto is been assembled by Peter Sellars, who has interwoven events from the New and Old Testaments with poetry reflecting themes of faith and liberation fromthe 12th Century mystic Hildegard von Bingen, to the 20th Century Mexican feminist poet Rosario Castellanos.

This world premiere recording, featuring the original cast, was made in Walt Disney Concert Hall at performances staged by Peter Sellars.

A champion of contemporary music and social engagement through art, Gustavo Dudamel commissioned the work together with the LA Phil as part of a long-standing creative relationship with John Adams.
