    About The Revelation       The Revelation  Musical     (Click collage to hear finale)


The Revelation Musical, which was received over a three-day period in the apt. in Chelsea where the research of the 24 readings on the Revelation had taken place over a seven-year period resulting the Commentary, opened on September 17, 1971. It was presented as an exploration in consciousness that took the audience on a mystical journey.   The reviewer from Backstage, Demo DiMartile, called it “a descent into the super­conscious demonstrative of a highly spiritual experience.”  


On October 21, 1971 the musical was the opening presentation at the ARE Fall Conference at the Universalist Church on Central Park West. In this performance, the Ballad replaced the narration and previewed the advent of “Rap” in the next pop opera and became the basis for the booklet: Ballad of the Revelation.  Details are documented in the Booklet: Visions Dreams and The Revelation and article “Discovering The Revelation” in Venture Inward Magazine, Nov/Dec, 1996.


Shane Miller - Artist and second Executive Director of the first ARE of New York, who had been one of the original members of the study group that researched the 24 readings on The Revelation that resulted in the Commentary, illustrated the story and created a series of slides that is currently available on DVD.


Frank Fitzgerald - Artist and group member, created the original Poster of the Revelation Musical (which he personally delivered early in the morning to the Village Voice) that is now a collector’s item used for the cover of The Ballad,


Norman Curtis - Pianist, arranger, musical director, created incidental music and music on the theme for the seven dance sequences, made choral arrangements and directed the music.
