The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, a World Premiere Opera
Performed by the San Francisco Opera Company
San Francisco, California
June 24 – 27, 2013

Join June Alliman Yoder, professor emerita of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary and Liz Gunden as they visit beautiful San Francisco for the world premiere of The Gospel of Mary Magdalene composed by Mark Adamo. The opera draws on the Gnostic Gospels, the Canonical Gospels and 50 years of New Testament scholarship to help us see the New Testament through the eyes of Mary Magdalene. She has long been condemned as a harlot or dismissed as a minor player in a well-known sacred narrative, but ancient manuscripts discovered in recent decades tell a very different story, giving us a striking new viewpoint on Jesus’ message to humanity.
