Special Guests will include Arthur Dodge as King Herod and John Cutler as Simon.These performances are the culmination of more than a year of rehearsals. The performance is drawn from the two-record set released in 1970 that featured Ian Gillan from Deep Purple as Jesus, Yvonne Elliman as Mary Magdalene, and Murray Head as Judas.
