  • The Passion of Monty Python

    The always unusual Revolution Orchestra, which mixes orchestral music with other performing arts, opened its seventh season on Sunday 11 February, with its latest creation, “The Passion of Monty Python,” a show dedicated to the work of the British comedy troupe.

    The first performance took place at the orchestra’s home base, the Israeli Opera house in Tel Aviv with performances scheduled through July in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Herzliya.

    The 90-minute show has been in the works for more than a year, said composer Zohar Sharon, who worked closely on it with his Revolution Orchestra partner and conductor Roi Oppenheim, as well as several others.

    This show features the orchestra’s familiar mix of music, video and stage work to reveal the humor and absurdity of Monty Python.

    With the orchestra conducted by Oppenheim, the show includes actor Ben Perry of the Tziporela troupe, along with the Moran Singers Ensemble, with staging by Itay Zvulun and Oppenheim.

    Sharon and Oppenheim included animated videos and clips from Monty Python’s oeuvre, including the “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” TV series, and the films “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” “Life of Brian,” and “The Meaning of Life”.

    Performance dates and ticket information for “The Passion of Monty Python” are available on the Revolution Orchestra site.
