The Play of Herod at the Monastery - December 9, 2012
Sunday December 9, 2012
7:00 PM
12th Century Music-Drama
Directed by Kelly Morris
Music direction by Kevin Culver

The Play of Herod is one of Atlanta's longest-running Christmas traditions. The play was first performed in Atlanta in 1974, in the drafty warehouse space of Kelly's Seed & Feed Theatre. For a quarter-century, the performances were continuously sold out and became a keenly anticipated part of the Atlanta Christmas season until the production was suspended in 1999. In December of 2004, the production was restaged by the original team of Director Kelly Morris and Music Director Kevin Culver.

The Play of Herod is one of a group of remarkable liturgical dramas, found in a Benedictine monastery in France, which are among the earliest dramatic works in the Christian era. In the Camerata Theatre production, the world of Herod is dreamlike, shadowy, and stark. The Christmas story unfolds in a medieval ceremony of simple gestures and ancient, haunting melodies. It is a tale of awestruck shepherds, kings from afar come to worship a baby, a King Herod clinging to power, the bloody slaughter of children. A consort of viols, recorders, krumm horn, hurdy-gurdy, and percussion accompanies the singers.

The Play of Herod is sung in Latin, with English translations projected above the action.

The play is not suited for babies or youngsters unable to sit quietly for an hour. Due to the nature of the play, there will be no late seating. Your cooperation will be rewarded with a magical evening!
