Strauss' 'Salome' with Stundyte, Pursio, Soffel, Storey and Casari from Bologna
Strauss' 'Salome' is an opera in one act to a German libretto by the composer, based on Hedwig Lachmann's German translation of the French play Salomé by Oscar Wilde. 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. Performers:
Salome: Ausrine Stundyte.
Jochanaan: Tuomas Pursio.
Herodias: Doris Soffel.
Herodes: Ian Storey.
Narraboth: Enrico Casari.
Teatro Comunale di Bologna Choir and Orchestra. Conductor: Juraj Valcuha.
