The welcome exception is Nick Pelomis who plays Herod’s self-indulgent wife, Herodias, with wry humour, great timing and a Marlene Dietrich-style disdain.
Costuming Giuffre in tacky silver eliminates any sense of the prophet’s obsessive, religious prudery and virginality so that the entire point of the seduction is lost.
