Prepare to be astounded and mesmerised by this horrifying yet exhilarating spectacle. Based on Oscar Wilde's notorious play, Strauss' opera explores the nature of desire and outer limits of human behaviour. One of the most extreme operatic experiences, Salome is an extraordinary work that still has the same power to shock audiences as it did when it was first performed.

The image of Salome kissing the severed head of John the Baptist (Jochanaan) at once repulses and fascinates, permeating popular culture from classical painting to theatre. Based on Oscar Wilde's notorious play, Strauss' scandalous opera combines a biblical tale with sexual awakening, eroticism and murder, exploring the nature of desire and outer limits of human behaviour.

Irresistible Salome, the teenage stepdaughter of King Herod (Herodes), is overcome by her desire for the prophet Jochanaan. After his rejection, she takes her revenge by demanding his head.

1 hour and 50 minutes, no interval.

Sung in German with English subtitles.
