By the Bay




Nathan Gunn and Sasha Cooke 250x250

Three weeks and counting: San Francisco Opera has been lavish with rehearsal time for The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, the conductor and director have been amazingly precise, generous, and inventive, and the singers go from strength to strength. And word is getting out: this New York Times/IHT preview piece includes Henry Fair’s beautiful imagery, and Listen Magazine has been gracious enough to permit me to include  the eloquent preview Damian Fowler wrote for them here.  (Pictured: Nathan Gunn as Yeshua and Sasha Cooke in the title rôle.  Image courtesy of J. Henry Fair.)
