“The Last Epistle”: A musical about the life of St. Paul

2009-07-22

The play’s eight acts retell the story of the saint through theater, dance and music. Through this original interpretation they’re able to convey both the human and spiritual side of St. Paul.

I think that mysticism is not just about God. It’s about the relationship between God and men so it’s about mixing the flesh and the Heaven.

As actors we are used to recite. The most difficult aspect of the play is to coordinate with the rest of the aspects such as the music, the chorus, and live instruments such as the cello and ballet.
That’s why it took two years for the author to write the script. The result is a mixture of quotes from the Bible and from the Apostle himself with made up words, projected images, dance and music that evoke the thoughts and dramatic life of the apostle.

It’s a religious subject but it wasn’t just about religion or this particular religion. It’s about the human souls, what it’s being a person.

The eight exciting acts begin with the martyrdom of Saint Stephen; Saint Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus; preaching and miracles; the banquet of the Roman governor; the shipwreck before reaching Malta, and life in Rome.

He travelled a lot and suffered much humiliation from those that were opposed to Christianity. They stoned him several times and miraculously survived. He had a very difficult life.

Is hopefully to transmit these strange mixture of something very real. Are talking just a man, Saint Paul, not like the other men, bus a men, and his mysticism”.

It’s a mix of artistic genres that brings the audience closer to the interior and exterior of one the greatest heroes of the Church.
