Mark Adamo is the composer of The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, which will be premiered by San Francisco Opera this summer. Recent recordings include a release of Houston Grand Opera’s premiere production of his first opera Little Women and Eclipse Chamber Orchestra’s all-Adamo compact disc, including the first recordings of Late Victorians, a cantata set in San Francisco during the first years of the AIDS crisis. Since its 1998 world premiere by Houston Grand Opera, Little Women, has been nationally telecast on the PBS series Great Performances, released on CD by Ondine Records, and heard in more than seventy-five national and international. 
American mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke makes her San Francisco Opera debut in the title role of Mark Adamo’s The Gospel of Mary Magdalene. She is a graduate of the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Program, and has appeared at the Met in several acclaimed roles. On the concert stage, she has been a soloist with many of the world’s finest symphonies. A dedicated recitalist, Cooke presented widely acclaimed New York and Washington debuts at Carnegie Hall and at the Kennedy Center. In 2010, she was awarded first place and the American prize in the José Iturbi International Music Competition, top prize in the Gerda Lissner Competition, and the Kennedy Center’s Marian Anderson Award.
