Operatic drama in one act Libretto by Richard Strauss after Oscar Wilde’s tale of the same name Performed in German with German and English supertitles.
Salome, the daughter of Herodias, is looking for love. She passionately desires the unknown prophet: the body, hair and lips of the man who so brusquely rejects her, in stark contrast to the lascivious King Herod. Bound by his promise to grant Salome’s every wish in exchange for a dance, she is given the head of Jochanaan to kiss. Richard Strauss’s masterpiece broke new ground in its opulent and vivid portrayal of decadence, spiritual corruption and destructive love.
