The première of Salome in Protected content have been an overwhelming affair: for this drama, Richard Strauss wrote ecstatic music that broke with everything hitherto known. The eponymous play by Oscar Wilde on which Strauss based his opera was considered indecent and had been banned by the censors in England for years. It is about the biblical Princess Salome, who demands the head of the prophet Jochanaan from King Herodes in reward for her erotic dancing.

Its an AMAG performance with reduced prices. In German with German and English surtitles.
