Straight from the pages of the 12th century Fleury Playbook, comes this hauntingly beautiful medieval drama that combines the traditional Christmas story with the story of a power-hungry King. When Three Wise Men visit King Herod, their story of a miraculous birth makes the paranoid ruler fearful for his throne and leads to the infamous 'massacre of the innocents'. Performed by the Victorian Youth Opera from a new arrangement by Victorian Opera’s Artistic Director Richard Mills, The Play of Herod takes on a unique sound quality in the magnificent acoustics of the Chapel of the Holy Spirit.
