The lurid legend of Saint Sebastian, the beautiful young man who spurned the advances of Emperor Diocletian and was summarily tied to a tree and executed by a firing squad of archers, has attracted the more prurient attentions of artists for centuries. When Claude Debussy and writer Gabriele d'Annunzio decided to present the myth in a gigantic, five-hour multimedia extravaganza with singing, recitation, mime and dance, something weird was bound to happen. Le Martyre de Saint Sebastian' was a tremendous flop, has not been staged since and is only heard in various fragmentary forms which reveal some of Debussy's more interesting and forward-looking music. This disc contains an oratorio treatment with translation by Leonard Bernstein himself and the spoken part of the Saint taken by Bernstein's wife, Felicia Montelegre.

The Martyrdom Of Saint Sebastian is a little known and rare film that I thoroughly enjoyed. However, it is an unusual production that won't be for everyone. A departure from mainstream moviemaking, it aims more to inspire by music and poetry than it does to entertain in a contemporary filmmaking style, and some viewers may be put off by the difference in tone that results. For those willing to judge it on its own terms, it rewards and inspires. Excellent screen captures of Martyrdom at the Phoenix Michael Biehn Archive
