SALOME FEATURING DIRECTORS PATRICE CAURIER AND MOSHE LEISER

Best known for the “Dance of the Seven Veils,” Strauss’s opera Salome is as riveting today as it was at its 1905 premiere. The libretto―dripping with opulent language from Oscar Wilde’s play by the same name―depicts the biblical story of Herod’s lovesick stepdaughter and John the Baptist’s ill fate. Please join us for a discussion with Salome Directors Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser as we discover how time has influenced their career in storytelling.”
