Salome’s lust for an imprisoned man, coupled with her stepfather’s lecherous desires, result in John the Baptist’s severed head on a plate. Powerful, intense, salacious — since its premiere in 1905, Strauss’ retelling of this biblical tale continues to shock and thrill audiences, and features one of the most demanding roles in all of opera. An all-new production featuring celebrated Metropolitan Opera soprano Kelly Cae Hogan. Opera Now applauded “the lovely Kelly Cae Hogan (as Salome) whose powerful voice carried the drama.” Stage Director, Stephen Lawless; Choreographer, Matthew Ferraro; Conductor  George ManahanPerformance repeats November 3, 2:00 pm, November 7 and 9, 7:30 pm. For ticket information please call the Portland Opera Box Office at 503-241-1802.

Sung in German with English translations projected above the stage.
