With its bizarre brew of eroticism and religion, Richard Strausss Salome was so disturbing when it first appeared that it was banned in Vienna and London. Today, its lost none of its power to send shivers through the audience, and this production eerily captures all the depravity of King Herods court in ancient Jerusalem. Starring as the princess whose sexually charged dance leads straight to her own destruction is Melody Moore, the dynamic soprano who has electrified the operas of Janácek, Wagner, and Puccini. Come see Salome cast her potent spell over South Florida. Each program is accompanied by a pre-show lecture an hour before curtain with a talk-back session immediately following the performance. Child limit is 6 years old.
