"under the former Monty Python's direction"

Music Well, here's a gap in the collection I didn't expect to be filled:
"BBC Four today announces it will broadcast ENO's highly acclaimed new production of Berlioz's The Damnation Of Faust directed by Terry Gilliam, this autumn. The production, under the former Monty Python's direction, transposes Berlioz's dramatic legend to the rise of Nazism in 20th-century Germany to stunning visual and musical effect, and features a stellar cast of Christine Rice, Peter Hoare and Christopher Purves, with an inspired set by Hildegard Bechtler. ENO's orchestra and chorus are conducted by ENO Music Director Edward Gardner."
Which isn't to say I wouldn't be more interested if that paragraph began "BBC Four today announces it will broadcast the RSC's highly acclaimed new production of Shakespeare's (sort of) lost play Cardenio ..." as if that's ever likely to happen under current regimes...
