R. STRAUSS

SALOME

15, 17, 19 MARCH 2016

Richard Strauss’ scandalously opulent 1905 setting of Oscar Wilde’s play has lost none of its power to shock and seduce. CTO Artistic Director Matthew Wild opened the 2016 season with a spectacular new production, in striking designs by Conor Murphy (designer of Wild’s acclaimed 2015 West Side Story), Michael Mitchell and Kobus Rossouw.
