Synopsis

As a femme fatale and epitome of perverse lust, the figure of Salome was the object of heightened literary fascination in late 19th-century France. Steeped in the spirit of the fin de siècle, Oscar Wilde’s tragedy Salomé represents the culmination of this trend. Having completed various symphonic poems, Richard Strauss found his way into the opera genre with his Salome, forging a musical idiom of unprecedented richness of sound and colour. The Italian director Romeo Castellucci has the extraordinary gift of creating images pulsating with knowledge of the subconscious. His approach to Salome is by way of the physical appearance of the Felsenreitschule. Romeo Castellucci is responsible for directing and designing stage sets, costumes and lighting in Richard Strauss’ Salome. Franz Welser-Möst conducts the Vienna Philharmonic. Asmik Grigorian, celebrated last season as Marie in Alban Berg’s Wozzeck, takes on the role of Salome. Gábor Bretz sings Jochanaan, Herodes is played by John Daszak, Anna Maria Chiuri sings Herodias and Julian Prégardien is Narraboth.
