19:00 Salome
Opera in one act by Richard Strauss. Coproduction with Metropolitan Opera. Libretto by the composer after the play of the same name by Oscar Wilde in Hedwig Lachmanní translation. Music Director: Tugan Sokhiev; Director: Claus Guth; Set Designer: Etienne Pluss. Sung in German. Narraboth gazes from a terrace in Herod's palace into the banquet hall at the beautiful Princess Salome; he is in love with her, and apotheosizes her, much to the disgusted fearfulness of the Page of Herodias. The voice of the Prophet Jochanaan is heard from his prison in the palace cistern; Herod fears him and has ordered that no one should contact him, including Jerusalem's High Priest. Tired of the feast and its guests, Salome flees to the terrace. When she hears Jochanaan cursing her mother (Herodias), Salome's curiosity is piqued. The palace guards will not honor her petulant orders to fetch Jochanaan for her, so she teasingly works on Narraboth to bring Jochanaan before her. Despite the orders he has received from Herod, Narraboth finally gives in after she promises to smile at him...
