I watched it on BBC2 at the time and was so disgusted with it that I cancelled my television licence and never renewed it. It is vulgar and boring; it made me sick to my stomach. It was co-written by Stewart Lee, who once said, "One would like to think that comedy could incite religious hatred. That would be great." (The Independent on Sunday, 5th December 2004.)

As another reviewer discovered, once the faux shock of the vulgarity wears off after 15 minutes, the 'opera' is exposed as being not worth watching, even, I suspect, if for Dawkins-worshipping 'atheists'.
