Artist's Description

Ben Hur at the O2 Arena {Millennium Dome} London, UK.

Camera Nikon D700 with 24-120mm Lense.

It was a wonderful privillege to be taken to the O2 Arena to view Ben Hur by my son and his friend. I also took along my friend Wole Bolade.

After reading the terrible reviews of the show, I was wondering if we’d enjoy it. I love the old film with Charlton Heston which was made 50 years ago now. I’m 50 this year:-). Well, I can tell you I was blown away with the production. Some things could have been done better, but the overall impression I got, as did my companions, was that it’s a quality production. With an obvious amount of creative genius and skill.

It followed the storyline from the book rather than the film, but all the elements of the film were in the play. The way they changed scenes was marvellous, and you felt that you were part of what was going on.

Ben Hur is a great performance, you’ll love it. It’s different from the film, but the story of forgiveness, faith and trust is there.
