Salome

16 May 2018
Countdown to event: 24 days
Salome Strauss Concert performance

From £18.00

Based on Oscar Wilde’s Salomé, this is the savage and bloody tale of King Herod’s step-daughter. When Herod’s prisoner Jokanaan rebuffs her advances, Salome vows she will kiss him – no matter the consequences. The latest in Opera North’s acclaimed concert performances which include the Ring Cycle and Turandot, Salome caused outrage when it was first performed in 1905. From the seductive ‘Dance of the Seven Veils’ to the explosive vocal parts, the violent sensuality of the score illustrates every moment of the story with unflinching vividness. This is opera at its most extreme, concentrated into 100 exhilarating minutes. **** ‘places the orchestra right at the heart of the drama… pure theatre in its own right’ The Guardian on the 2017 concert staging of Turandot Approximately 1 hours 45 minutes Sung in German with English titles Concert staging PJ Harris Full cast list can be found on our website: https://www.operanorth.co.uk/productions/salome
