5727367English National Opera: Salome
DateFriday 28th September 2018 to Tuesday 23rd October 2018
DescriptionBased on Oscar Wilde's lurid play, Strauss's opera is an intense psychological exploration of the Salome story. Her brutality and power are the product of the warped cycles of masculinity that have been passed down through the generations. Salome is among the works that set the course of music in the last century. It is celebrated for Salome's 'Dance of the Seven Veils', which Herod demands in return for whatever Salome wants. Her choice is shocking, and reveals how far she will go to embody the twisted ideals of her parents' world. This new production marks the UK operatic debut of acclaimed theatre director Adena Jacobs. Making her ENO debut as Salome is Allison Cook. Joining her are Michael Colvin as Herod (following his recent appearance in ENO's Lulu) and mezzo Susan Bickley as Herodias. Bass David Soar sings Jokanaan for the first time, while ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins conducts.
