The Gospel According to the Other Mary with the LA Phil
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.
