RICHARD STRAUSS: SALOME

This week's broadcast, the Chicago Lyric Opera presents Richard Strauss' Salome.

Richard Strauss: Salome

Salome, nubile and depraved, daughter of Herodias is the coveted stepchild of lascivious Herod, ruler of Judea.

Oh, how she lusts after John the Baptist, who languishes in prison...

But the prophet rejects her, and Salome will do anything to have his head--including revealing all for Herod, who will give anything to see her perform the Dance of the Seven Veils.
