    Great performance of Salome. Angela Demoke is lovely to listen to and engaging to look at....all that blood!!, Stig Andersen was wonderful great singer great actor and such authority . Andris Nelsons brought music to life brilliantly. Loved my second Salome although I could have done with perhaps a bit more colour and a bit less blood. A bit too slaughter- house for my taste but I suppose that's the flavour of the times

    When this production was first shown, the critics pointed out that the upstairs is invisible from the amphitheatre. But no-one has altered it. And why has Jokanaan whom Salome described as being like an ivory statue got so many clothes on? Others have been shedding theirs for no apparent reason. What IS that woman doing at the back in her undies?

    • There's really nothing up there to see. A table, people dining, but you can't really see their faces or any actions. You're not missing anything.

  3. I thought this was splendid and really did enjoy it, so much so that I went to see it several times. The orchestra was sumptuous and I could feel the blood pumping through my veins - great stuff :)
