Storyline

Not The Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy) is a comic oratorio based on Monty Python's Life of Brian, which retells the tragic tale of Mandy, impregnated by a Roman soldier, giving birth to Brian, a reluctant revolutionary of the People's Front of Judea who falls in love with Judith, gets mistaken for a Messiah and is arrested by the Romans and sentenced to be crucified. It ranges in reference from Handel, through a naughty Mozart duet, to the Festival of Nine Carols, Bob Dylan, and the classic finale "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life". Written by Anonymous

Aching Nostalgia
9 May 2013 | by (Victoria, BC. Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very nostalgic performance with all manner of subtle references to Monty Python sketches and the movie Life Of Brian.

The music is extremely varied all over the map from Handel to Mexican Mariachi band to doo wap. It is very tuneful. So often musical jokes hurt you ears. I burst out laughing over and over. They use real talented opera singers, and a large formal chorus, which made it all the funnier when they had to sing silly lines. They had the entire BBC orchestra as "the band". A lot of work went into the orchestration and the filming. The big surprise what how well Eric Idle could sing the operatic parts.

I actually cried when it was over. It was the nostalgia of Monty Python over my life, and seeing the performers now in old age, and realising this would be the big finale. Unfortunately, John Cleese did not make an appearance. That created a big emotional hole.
