Pittsburgh Opera: Salome

November 5 - 13, 2016

Rich and intense, Salome is an equal parts shocking and thrilling tale of a petulant and beautiful Princess, stepdaughter of the lecherous King Herod and the dark path that her lustful wiles drag her down. Based on Oscar Wilde's famously passionate play, Richard Strauss' operatic adaptation is a creative masterpiece that continues to linger in your mind, long after you've left the theater.
