John Adams’ The Gospel According To The Other Mary presents biblical characters and events in a new and contemporary light, -- from the perspectives of Mary Magdalene and Martha. Events from the New and Old Testaments have been woven together, with poetry reflecting themes of faith and liberation from the 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 Disney Hall, Los Angeles, at performances staged by Peter Sellars, and conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.

“…much of The Gospel finds Adams at his most evocative and inventive” - San Francisco Chronicle

“…some of the strongest, most impassioned music of Adams career…an immensely potent work.” - The New Yorker
