Desired by all who see her, Salome, the daughter of King Herod, is used to getting what she wants. But her passion for John the Baptist (Jokanaan) turns into an insatiable longing that can only be satisfied with blood.

Featuring the infamous ‘Dance of the Seven Veils’ and based on Oscar Wilde’s scandalous play, Richard Strauss’s opera is a feast for the senses that has lost none of its impact. Malin Byström reprises her performance as Salome in David McVicar’s staging, with conductor Alexander Soddy making his House debut.
