On March 25th 2010, For One Night Only
, cinemas around the UK (and in a few other countries) are showing Eric Idle's Not The Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy)
, his fabulously entertaining comic oratorio based on Monty Python's Life of Brian
, filmed at its only European performance at the Royal Albert Hall in October 2009.
This hilarious take on the Messiah features the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, a host of superb soloists in the lead roles including Rosalind Plowright and Eric Idle, with Michael Palin as Mrs Betty Parkinson and special guest appearances from Pythons Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam. And of course three sheep!

. There are a few cinemas in other European countries (and in S. Africa) also showing the oratorio.
