Orchestra of Opera North

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. 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 intense and intoxifying minutes.

This is a concert performance. Sung in German with English titles. The performance lasts approximately 1 hour 40 minutes.
