It's a typical family Christmas for the Plantagenets, complete with backstabbing, double-crossing, and rampant infidelity. James Goldman's brilliant historical drama pits King Henry II against the strong-willed Eleanor of Aquitaine, brought to life by Alfred Molina and Kathleen Chalfant.
Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, in December 2001.
