Salomé

March 2014
1:30:13
Drama

A dark Biblical tale of hubris, lust, and self-destruction, written in the inimitable voice of Oscar Wilde. The beautiful Salomé is King Herod’s stepdaughter, who helps her mother Herodias exact a gruesome revenge on the prophet John the Baptist. Wilde originally wrote this powerful one-act tragedy in French, and the play was so controversial that no theatre in England would produce it for nearly four decades.

Original music by Djivan Gasparyan and Lian Ensemble.

Includes a live post-performance discussion with director Michael Hackett and Wilde scholar David Rodes.

Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLA in January of 2014.
