The recordings feature the Monty Python troupe celebrating their 40th anniversary with a song oratorio inspired by the cult film "The Life of Brian." The Oct. 23, 2009, performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall boasts an onstage reunion of Python troupe members Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam.
The discs include three behind-the-stage featurettes and six sing-a-long songs, along with BD-Live functionality on the Blu-ray Disc version.
"In 1979, Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' turned the Biblical epic on its head," according to the disc's producers. "Now, the creators of Spamalot Eric Idle & John Du Prez turn classical music on its ear! Prepare for Not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy), the comedic masterpiece that combines all of the unforgettable humor of the Python’s most celebrated film with the overblown grandeur of operatic solists, full symphony orchestra and chorus."
Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy) will be available on Blu-ray for $30.95 and DVD for $24.96.
