American composer John Adams likes nothing better than to see well-known stories in a new light, and his version of the Passion of Christ is told through the eyes of the women who were with Jesus in his final hours. The first full staging of Adams's 'The Gospel According to the Other Mary' - the other Mary being the Magdalene - had its premiere on Friday at the English National Opera in a production by Peter Sellars. Its world premiere was as an oratorio in 2012.
Peter Sellars gave his last performance as Inspector Clouseau in Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978).
A while ago I heard Peter Sellars doing an impersonation of Laurence Olivier doing Richard the 3rd. He proceeded to do so with the lyrics of “She Loves You” by The Beatles. I thought it was the most brilliant thing I've ever heard of since sliced bread. But every time I tried to describe this to friends they would tell me that I sounded like Katherine Hepburn...not Peter Sellars. That gave me an idea: Katherine Hepburn in "The Lion in Winter" doing "You Oughtta Know" by Alanias Morissette - to Peter O'Toole.
