Salome [electronic resource]: From the Royal Opera House

Peter Hall's magnificent production of Strauss's opera Salome features sensational acting from Maria Ewing - who, as the sinister and ruthless heroine named in the title, ultimately leaves nothing to the imagination in her Dance of the Seven Veils. She leads a fine cast, including Michael Devlin as a strong-voiced Jokanaan, Kenneth Riegel as a devilish Herod, Gillian Knight as the depraved Herodias, and Robin Leggate as the infatuated Narraboth. The orchestra, in excellent form, is conducted by Sir Edward Downes, whose memorable and rewarding career with the Royal Opera House will no doubt be appreciated by the classical music community for decades to come.
