Salome, 2018, Tal Silverman

Opening ENO’s 2018/19 Season, this new production of Salome marked the UK operatic debut of theatre director Adena Jacobs, whose work is noted for questioning conventional patriarchal attitudes with results that are radical, contemporary and feminine. ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins conducted.
Hailed as ‘one of the greatest masterpieces of our time’ by Mahler, Salome is among the works that set the course of music in the last century. Based on Oscar Wilde’s lurid play, it is an intense exploration of the Salome story.
