Synopsis

Opera in one act (1905)
New Production! Based on Oscar Wilde’s scandalous play of the same name, Strauss’ masterpiece ensured his status as Wagner’s successor. Salome (soprano Elza van den Heever), Princess of Judea, finds palace life dreary. Her curiosity is roused when she hears the voice of Jochanaan (Iain Paterson), a prophet held prisoner by her stepfather, King Herod (Zoran Todorovich), who is afraid of him. Obsessed by this enigmatic and virtuous man, Salome is ready to do anything to possess him, dead or alive... A dazzling hour and forty minutes in which, for her debut at the Paris Opera, American director Lydia Steier conjures up the work’s decadent essence and Simone Young, the newly appointed Chief Conductor of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, guides the Paris Opera orchestra through Strauss's dynamic score.
