John Adams' The Gospel According to the Other Mary, first performed in 2012 in Los Angeles, is something of an expansion on the composer's El Niño, a Passion story adorned with a variety of contemporary themes and musical materials. Like the earlier work, it features a libretto by longtime Adams collaborator Peter Sellars, and it may be sung on-stage as an oratorio or presented as an opera. Mary Magdalene is indeed a central figure in the work, but actually it is more than the trick perspective the title might imply; as with El Niño Sellars incorporates such devices as set pieces featuring poetry by other writers (this time poet Louise Erdrich plays the central role).

The characters brought to life in the Baroque-era operas of great composers such as Handel and Vivaldi – protagonists whose passions, loves, misfortunes, hopes, and longings unfold before us on stage – are, in reality, musical depictions of the myriad journeys experienced by the human soul.
