Salomé
2:00PM, Saturday, February 3, 2018
Walter S. Gubelmann Auditorium

OSCAR WILDE
Salomé

The story has been told before, but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the center of a revolution. Internationally acclaimed director Yaël Farber (“Les Blancs”) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre. The Daily Telegraph raved, “It looks amazing – with restlessly rotating stages, slow-mo physicality, cinema-epic robes and tableaux vivants worthy of Caravaggio.”

Please note: Salomé contains nudity, and the characters depict and make reference to sexual violence.

Estimated run time:
2 hours
No intermission
