About

World Premiere Recording of John Adams’ ‘21st Century Masterpiece’ (The Los Angeles Times).

A timely, controversial work of grand proportions, The Gospel according to the other Mary is a new, full-scale reimagining of the Bach oratorio, from composer John Adams and iconoclast writer/director Peter Sellars. Adams and Sellars’ previous collaborations included 'Nixon in China', the most-performed American opera since Gershwin’s 'Porgy and Bess', and 'Dr Atomic', an opera about the invention of the atomic bomb

This World Premiere recording, featuring the original cast, was made in Disney Hall, Los Angeles, at performances staged by Peter Sellars - with soloists, the Los Angeles Master Chorale and the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.

The 2 CD set will contain an introduction by the composer and a synopsis by Peter Sellars in English, plus the libretto in the original languages (English and Spanish) with English translations of the Spanish texts
