The Rain of Fire

A group of archaeologists excavate part of what was once Pompeii. As the people of Pompeii are preparing for the festival of Vulcanalia, Pliny the Younger appears and helps to recount the story of what actually took place nearly 2,000 years ago including the part his father, Pliny the Elder, played in the story.

Although created as a musical, Pompeii is a fictional story accurately based on the historical facts known about Pompeii.
