She stops at nothing to get what she wants… and she wants it all
Who says opera has to be long?
Desires collide as biblical themes, eroticism, and a thirst for blood are transformed in Strauss’ take on Oscar Wilde’s probing psychological drama. A provocative opera in one act, this controversial story has not lost its ability to shock.
Set in Biblical times, this erotically charged opera centers on a tangled triangle: the persecuted John the Baptist, a lecherous King Herod and the monarch’s pathologically seductive stepdaughter, Salome.
The cast features a quartet of HOT debuts: soprano Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs, noted for her “rapturous sound” and “charismatic stage presence,” takes on the title role opposite Canadian bass-baritone Nathan Berg as the object of her desire, Jochanaan. Famed American tenor Chris Merritt is her lust-filled step-father Herod and Greek-American mezzo-soprano Daveda Karanas is her manipulative mother Herodias.
The production will be led by HOT Principal Conductor/Artistic Director Emmanuel Plasson and directed by Karen Tiller-Polivka, in her HOT return.
