R. Strauss
Salome
She always gets what she wants.

R. Strauss’s powerful psychodrama Salome returns to HGO for the first time in 20 years in a production directed by Francisco Negrin. The revolutionary score reinvents Oscar Wilde’s biblical drama of a deeply disturbed princess who has fallen in love with Jokanaan (John the Baptist). After he denies her, she performs the infamous and seductive “Dance of the Seven Veils” for King Herod in exchange for John’s head.

Lise Lindstrom makes her HGO debut in the thrilling title role and joins HGO Studio alumnus bass-baritone Ryan McKinny as Jokanaan. Eun Sun Kim returns to conduct as HGO principal guest conductor.

Sung in German with projected English translation.
