The Gospel According to the Other Mary with the LA Phil

Vern Evans

On March 7, 8, and 10, Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil will unveil Peter Sellars' world premiere staging of The Gospel According to the Other Mary by John Adams. This dramatic vision of the Passion - an oratorio for orchestra, chorus, and soloists - draws its texts from Biblical stories of Lazarus and Jesus, contextualized with excerpts from the memoir of social activist Dorothy Day and poetry by Louise Erdrich, Rosario Castellanos, Primo Levi, Hildegard von Bingen, and Rubén Dario. 

Later this month Gustavo and the LA Phil will take this theatrical setting of The Gospel According to the Other Mary on tour to London's Barbican Centre (March 16), Lucerne (March 20), Paris (March 23), and New York (March 27)
