Winners of the Sky Arts and Royal Philharmonic Society Opera awards, Opera North's performances are regarded as being utterly superb. We are thrilled to present them in a concert performance of Richard Strauss' Salome.
It's opera at its most extreme. Concentrated into just 100 intense minutes, there is no let-up in its power and intoxication.
From the seductive 'Dance of the Seven Veils' to the explosive vocal parts, the violent sensuality of the score illustrates every moment of the story with unflinching vividness, illuminating the darkest corners of a world that has lost all moral compass.
A new concert performance of a work that caused an outrage when it was first performed in 1905, and which, more than a century later, has lost none of its power to shock.
