Simon Rattle conducts “The Gospel According to the Other Mary”

Maria Magdalena is one of the most fascinating female figures in the Bible. In The Gospel According to the Other Mary, composer John Adams and librettist Peter Sellars recount the Passion of Christ from her perspective. Just as multi-faceted as the story is Adams’s irresistible music, in which minimalism is mixed with imaginative orchestration and jazzy verve. Sir Simon Rattle conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker.
