Social justice, political unrest, miracles and resurrection -- could there be any timelier occasion for John Adams' "The Gospel According to the Other Mary"? Join the San Francisco Symphony in celebrating composer John Adams' 70th birthday with what the "Los Angeles Times" called "the most sophisticated, majestic, and moving [music] of his career." With a libretto by Peter Sellars built on texts and poems from feminist writers and social activists, the SF Symphony's performance of "The Gospel According to the Other Mary" at Davies Symphony Hall will be a powerful, not-to-be-missed event.
