Salome’s lust for an imprisoned man, coupled with her stepfather’s lecherous desires, results in John the Baptist’s severed head on a plate! Powerful, intense and salacious since it first debuted in 1909, Strauss’ retelling of this Biblical tale continues to shock and thrill audiences, and features one of the most demanding roles in opera. This all-new Portland Opera production stars celebrated Met soprano Kelly Cae Hogan as Salome. Tickets at Portland Opera.
