Richard Strauss

Live Streaming / Duration approximately: 120 min.

From the play in which Oscar Wilde tells his own version of the biblical story of Salome, who falls hopelessly in love with John the Baptist, Richard Strauss composed a striking dramatic opera that premiered in 1905. For this Metropolitan Opera production, broadcast in the Grand Auditorium, the German director Claus Guth, a specialist in, and awarded for, his approaches to the operas of R. Strauss, was called in. Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts this Salome, which materialises on stage in the enchanting body and voice of soprano Elza van den Heever.
