Salome in Tokyo



Music by Richard STRAUSS
Opera in 1 act
Sung in German with Japanese supertitles
Opera Palace

Salome is a masterpiece by the archetypal German late Romantic composer, Richard STRAUSS. It is a one-act opera based on the eponymous play by Oscar WILDE, featuring an episode from the New Testament. The decadent content of the opera brought a reaction at its first performance and made STRAUSS’s name known.
The conductor is Dan ETTINGER, and the director, August EVERDING. Also, Camilla NYLUND appears in the title role for the first time since the Rosenkavalier in 2007.
