Salome Opera *Canceled*

Dance, Theater & Film

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’ name known. A crucible of rich melodies and bold discords, this tense and dramatic one-act performance will take your breath away. This production by the late August Everding is a magical masterpiece, set around a huge ancient well in centre stage. Since its first showing in 2000, it has been a popular repertoire at the New National Theatre Tokyo (NNTT) and this is their seventh show.

Constantin Trinks will be conducting, noted for his prowess with Richard Strauss. The main role will be played by the Alex Penda, while heldentenor Ian Storey will be playing Herodes. Jennifer Lamore, known for her performance as Kostelnička in “Jenůfa”, will play Herodias, while Russian opera and Wagner extraordinaire Tómas Tómasson will appear in the role of Johanaan.

Note: Sung in German with English and Japanese surtitles.
