AD/BC: A Rock Opera Full Episode Guide

  • An outstanding accomplishment in late 70's British religious rock opera, this lavishly produced adaptation of Tim Wynde and Solomon Homerton's 'fringe stage sensation' celebrates the life affirming story of Christ's nativity as told through the eyes of the Innkeeper (played by Wynde). Joined by the cream of rock (Roger Kingsman, The Purple Explosion), folk (Maria Preston Bush), expressionist dance (C.T Homerton) and professional wrestling (Kaplin Choice), Solomon and Wynde's AD/BC features such classic songs as 'Spreading the Holy Light (Part 2)', 'Jospeh Arrives' and the 'Telephone Call of Ruth (To Tony)'. Wynde's 'sweeping score' and Solomon's 'lively lyrics' combine to make a 'startling'-ly fresh take on this universal story of love, faith and hotel management.
