Not the Messiah: He’s a Very Naughty Boy!

Inspired by the brilliant Monty Python film "Life of Brian" comes this comic oratorio. Filmed at the famed Royal Albert Hall in London on its only European performance during the fall of 2009, it was performed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Monty Python comedy troupe.

The oratorio was written by John Du Prez and Eric Idle. It is in five parts for orchestra, soloists and chorus. Starring Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, and the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. You don't have to be a fan of operatic style music as it is a mish mash of Handel, gospel, doo-wop, Dylan, and Gilbert & Sullivan. Plus it is funny, so be prepared to laugh at the insanity that is Monty Python.
