Salome, King Herod’s adolescent stepdaughter, is infatuated with the prophet Jokanaan, who rejects her. Herod promises her whatever she wants if she’ll dance for him. She agrees and, after dancing, demands as her reward the prophet’s head on a silver platter. Strauss’ sensuous score and Oscar Wilde’s provocative poetry capture the raw power of this fascinating Biblical story.
