Revelation: A Rock Opera

Revelation: A Rock Opera June 7, 2016

Have you heard about Mike Doughty’s rock opera based on the Book of Revelation? I love this sort of thing. Others have alluded to Revelation (see “Supper’s Ready” by Genesis, for instance), but to my knowledge this is the first complete rock opera setting of the book. And interestingly it begins with John 1:1 and a discussion of inerrancy!

    Revelations is perfect for a rock opera, either heavy metal (since so much early metal took images from Revelations) or psychedelic (since the book is so trippy to begin with).

    I saw “Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat” as a kid as part of a School Trip. It was great. My favorite musical is “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”.
