Salome

Salome by Richard Strauss

9 performances:
April 21, 27
May 1, 4, 7, 10, 16, 22

Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts
145 Queen St. W. (at University Avenue)

The Canadian Opera Company’s spring season continues with the return of celebrated Canadian director Atom Egoyan’s searing, critically acclaimed COC production of Richard Strauss’s Salome. Adapted from Oscar Wilde’s play, the opera recounts the biblical story of Salome, who – to the horror of her stepfather Herod – demands the head of John the Baptist in return for performing the Dance of the Seven Veils. In Swedish-American star soprano Erika Sunnegårdh, the COC has a Salome who can meet the vocal and physical demands of one of opera’s most challenging roles. Rounding out the impressive cast is a line-up of familiar and new opera stars: Canadian Richard Margison, making his role debut as Herod; German baritone Martin Gantner, in his COC debut, and American bass-baritone Alan Held, share the role of Jochanaan (John the Baptist); and German mezzo-soprano Hanna Schwarz is Salome’s mother, Herodias, in a COC debut performance. COC Music Director Johannes Debus conducts Strauss’s ecstatic and intoxicating music, with COC resident conductor Derek Bate taking over for one performance on May 22.

Single tickets for Salome are $12 – $325 (with specially priced $22 tickets available for people under the age of 30).

Visit the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts Box Office, located at 145 Queen St. W., Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
