The program includes excerpts from Massenet’s Herodiade and Strauss’s Salome performed live, as well as selections from both the 1923 film 'Salome' starring silent film actress Alla Nazimova and the 1953 version with Charles Laughton as Herod.

In conjunction with A Strange Magic: Gustave Moreau’s Salome.
