Composer: Richard Strauss
Librettist: Richard Strauss
Premiere Date: Dec 9, 1905, Königliches Opernhaus, Dresden
A psychological thriller draped in lust, incest, power, and seduction, Salome is the twisted tale of a depraved tyrant, his bewitching stepdaughter, and her unholy infatuation with John the Baptist. First transported from Mark’s Gospel to the world’s stage by Oscar Wilde, the opera Salome scandalized the music world into the 1930s, and continues to captivate with its sublimely rich musical tapestries.
Performed in German with English supertitles
