Fabio Luisi Conducts Salome

Jan. 31-Feb. 2
FRIDAY AT 7:30 PM

The scandalous subject of Salome put Strauss’s opera-writing career on a fast — if not notorious — track. It’s about the depraved teen who, in exchange for a dance with seven veils, gets what she asks for — the head of John the Baptist … on a silver platter — then pays for it. In the hair-raising final s ene, a crazed Salome sings some of the most spinetingling music you’ll ever hear. Vocal and orchestral thrills and chills guaranteed!
