ADAMS The Gospel According to the Other Mary
American composer John Adams’ The Gospel According to the Other Mary combines the traditional passion story with contemporary voices of social activism and spirituality. The dramatic setting makes this biblical narrative a present and gripping reality as it weaves together stories of joy, woe and the miraculous for a powerful performance not-to-be-missed. Join David Robertson, the STL Symphony and Chorus for these electrifying concerts before they perform the work at Carnegie Hall in celebration of the composer’s 70th birthday.
Please note there will be no late seating for this performance.
