Their 1987 music drama Nixon in China has become the most popular American opera since Porgy and Bess. Now the powerhouse creative partnership that is John Adams and Peter Sellars unveil their new work for Barbican audiences, played and conducted by the musicians for whom it was written. The Gospel According to the Other Mary is a 90-minute oratorio for orchestra, chorus and soloists, based on the New Testament stories of Lazarus and Jesus’s Passion and which draws on evocative Mexican poetry. The score is played here in its European premiere by the orchestra which Adams has described as ‘one of the most supple and flexible of any in the world.’
