A Change of Heart

The Academy of Sacred Drama presents a powerful Lenten reflection: a musical drama by Giovanni Bononcini, his oratorio La conversione di Maddalena (1701). In this tale of the conversion of Mary Magdalene, the beautiful courtesan walks away from a life of pleasure, influenced by her persistent sister, Martha. Dramatically sung by Awet Andemicael, Janna Critz, Nola Richardson, and John Taylor Ward and accompanied by historical string instruments from the Baroque era.
