Salome

Date: 2 Feb 2019

In King Herod’s lurid fantasies, lust has no boundaries and desire no limits.

Even his own stepdaughter tempts him, taunts him: Salome, the virgin seductress, an innocent with a taste for blood.

Richard Strauss’ taboo-breaking opera strips back Oscar Wilde’s play to its core: a gripping journey to the outer edges of human behaviour.

Lise Lindstrom sings the title role in this revival of a Gale Edwards-directed production. Andreas Conrad is Herod, Jacqueline Dark Herodias and Alexander Krasnov Jokanaan.
