TFBT: The Gospel at Colonus
I just watched the DVD I got for Christmas of "The Gospel at Colonus". Wow! Incredible! Moving! Top quality performance and production values. OMG! I don't know who the intend audience was? How many people are interested in Gospel music and Greek tragedies? There is a brightly garbed Gospel choir dressed up as the Grecian chorus. There are as many as 8 performances protraying Oedipus at any given time. It is amazing and inspiring. Most of the performers are actually weeping during and after the death scene. Unbelieveable. The cast had to be as big as the audience! Wow!
