The Gospel According to the Other Mary

Austrian premiere

A Passion oratorio by John Adams

In English and Spanish language with German surtitles

The American composer John Adams and librettist Peter Sellars focus on the marginalized perspectives of Mary and Martha. In their Opera/Oratorio The Gospel According to the Other Mary they set Biblical characters and events, including the resurrection of Lazarus and the passion of Christ, in a powerfully political, contemporary light. When Mary is released from jail, she is reunited with Martha, her sister. Martha runs a shelter for unemployed and homeless women. When their brother Lazarus dies before their eyes while an uprising rumbles outside, each sister’s attitudes and beliefs are put to the test.


AUDIENCE DISCUSSION WITH PETER SELLARS
Following the performance on 18 June, there will be an audience discussion with Peter Sellars and director Lisenka Heijboer Castañón. The discussion will be held in English.
