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

2009-07-22

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