Richard Strauss’s masterpiece is among the works that set the course of music in the last century.

Based on Oscar Wilde’s lurid play, the opera is an intense exploration of the biblical Salome story. For Strauss, the appeal was not the shocking tale, but the chance to write explosive, fantastical music which instead of providing a commentary, explicitly describes the disturbances raging in the characters ́ violent minds.

Presented by Bergen National Opera, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Bergen International Festival.
