Description

Peter Hall’s 1992 production of Strauss’s opera Salome features a thrilling performance from Maria Ewing who, as the sinister and monstrous heroine of the title, ultimately leaves nothing to the imagination in her Dance of the Seven Veils.

 

Ewings leads a fine cast that includes Michael Devlin as a strong-voiced Jokanaan, Kenneth Riegel as a devilish Herod, Gillian Knight as the depraved Herodias and Robin Leggate as the infatuated Narraboth. The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, in excellent form, is conducted by Edward Downes.

 

This production contains nudity and scenes of violence.
