The Gospel According to the Other Mary

Austrian premiere

In englischer und spanischer Sprache mit deutschen Übertiteln

The American composer John Adams and librettist Peter Sellars focus on the marginalized perspectives of Mary Magdalene 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.
