UWA Music presents Not the Messiah : (He’s a Very Naughty Boy) Other events...
It’s the Messiah – but not as you know it!

Based on the hugely popular musical satire Monty Python’s Life of Brian, this comic oratorio (written by Eric Idle & John DuPrez) and described as 'baroque ‘n’ roll' will feature the UWA Symphony Orchestra, Symphonic Chorus of UWA, soloists and bagpipes!

A pastiche of musical styles, encompassing Welsh hymns, country and western, doo-wop, hip hop, Broadway and Greek chorus, this hilarious production is sure to delight!

Mrs Betty Parkinson will host the evening, with Head of Voice Andrew Foote and student soloists reprising some of the best-loved roles from the film.

With songs including 'What Have the Romans Ever Done For Us?', 'Hail to the Shoe' (a homage to Handel's Hallelujah Chorus), and the hilariously risqué 'Amourdeus' you'll be laughing in the aisles from start to finish!

Join us for a night of irreverent fun and sensational music!
