The Agony and The Ecstasy is the gripping tale of Renaissance artist Michelangelo and his two loves: his art and Contessina.


The Theatre Mega Production is the magnum opus of the students of CHRIST (Deemed to be University) performed every year by the students from CHRIST (Deemed to be University) from across all disciplines of the university. The script, the music, the Lyrics, the costume design, the Sets design, the publicity design and execution, are all other aspects of a play are conceptualized and executed by the students. The play is directed by Ms, Esther Yates (HOD Theatre Studies), under whose able guidance, the overall aspects and nitty-gritties of the play are ably supervised.


The play also explores the various dynamics of his relation with Pope Julius II. Everything in the story leads to him creating his most renowned work i.e., The Sistine Chapel. The theatrical script is written based on the book (same title) by Erwin Stone and is the world stage premiere.
