AD/BC is a rock opera with music by Matt Berry and lyrics by him and Richard Ayoade. It aired on BBC Three in 2004.
The Opera is a pastiche on the original rock operas of the early seventies such as Jesus Christ Superstar. Tim Wynde (Matt Berry) introduces his creation AD/BC as a new telling "told in rock" of the birth of Christ. This time however the story is told from the point of view of the Innkeeper.
It was produced by Steve Coogan's production company Baby Cow and features friends and colleagues of the writers including Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, Julia Davis, Rich Fulcher and Matt Lucas. It was shown only once on the BBC.
