Ferenc Erkel and Hungarian Heritage award-winning composer László Tolcsvay was a founding member of the bands Tolcsvay Trió and Fonográf. The former was the first to combine rock with Hungarian folk music, and became, as did Fonográf, one of the most popular groups of the '70s. After creating his monumental Hungarian Mass (1987) and his first musical, Doctor Herz (1988), László Tolcsvay teamed up with Péter Müller and Péter Sziámi Müller to jointly produce their work The Gospel of Mary, which focuses on the role of the mother and motherhood in the biblical story that the world knows from the Evangelists. Premièred in 1991, the rock opera has been performed nearly a thousand times in Hungary and abroad over the past 25 years, and has been presented in numerous major theatres translated into English, German, Italian, Slovak and Czech, as well as being released on CD and in a film version.
