Not the Messiah by sighthound on 25 July 2008 1:02am
 
All Things Considered on NPR just aired an interview with Eric Idle about his oratorio, "Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy)" which will be at Wolf Trap and the Hollywood Bowl. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=92869664
There are lots of snippets of the songs. (There's a new lumberjack song.)

Geraldine, when is he going to be @ the Hollywood Bowl?
 
Re: Not the Messiah by sighthound on 25 July 2008 4:16am
 
August 2nd. Wolf Trap is tonight, I think.

Thank you so much, Geraldine ! I sooo wish he'd bring Not The Messiah to the UK, so I could go and see ! I can't afford doing to the US :(
But in the recent interview Eric said he's got the idea of bringing the production to Royal Albert Hall nex year and perform iton the day of Python 40-year anniversary !
I *HOPE* he wasn't joking !

Thanks for posting it!

Yes, thanks, geraldine. I'd been wopndering how he was getting on with 'Not The Messiah' - or if he'd even started it - but clearly he's not been Idle, ha-ha-ha.

I'd LOVE to see it at RAH - that hall was built for choirs of thousands, just as Handel oratorios used to be performed, and it would make a great spectacle if lights were creatively used, as they often are there these days.

here's hoping!
