Based on Oscar Wilde‘s 1891 play, this controversial new production of Richard Strauss’s one act masterpiece Salome marks the UK operatic debut of acclaimed theatre director Adena Jacobs.
An intense psychological exploration of the infamous biblical story of Salome, stepdaughter of Herod Antipas, who performs her Dance of the Seven Veils in return for the head of John the Baptist on a silver platter. Her shocking brutality and power are the product of the warped cycles of masculinity that have been passed down through the generations.
ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins conducts the sumptuously rich score which evokes the brutality of Herod’s corrupt court.
Please note that this production contains violence and scenes of a sexual nature and is recommended for adult audiences only.
