Prepare to be astounded and mesmerised by this horrifying yet exhilarating spectacle.
Based on Oscar Wilde’s notorious play, Richard 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.
Uncover the shocking bible story re-imagined in typically scandalous and sensual style by Oscar Wilde. Experience the power of Strauss’s mesmerising and hypnotic music, including the infamous ‘Dance of the Seven Veils’. Be seduced by the thrills of horror, suspense, and finally catharsis in less time than the average movie.
Hear the vocal prowess of an extraordinary cast, including rising star Vida Mikneviciute who makes her role debut as Salome. Enjoy St Kilda in summer with a pre-show sunset stroll along the beach or dinner at one of the many nearby restaurants.
