Salomé | [Oscar Wilde]

Salomé

A dark tale of hubris, lust, and self-destruction… as told by a man who famously fell prey to those same impulses in his own life. Oscar Wilde wrote his original interpretation of the Biblical story of Salomé in French, and the play was so controversial that no theatre in England would produce it for nearly four decades. Includes a conversation with director Michael Hackett and Wilde scholar David Rodes. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast production.

    "First Rate Production!"

    As I contemplate going to see Salome at the Santa Fe Opera this morning I thought it would be nice to review the play that started it all, Oscar Wilde's Salome.
    I'm not sure that our age is capable of the genius he shows in this writing. Oh he takes liberties with the story for sure, but wow! The story line is incredible, the understanding that Oscar Wilde had of the scriptures and the culture of antiquity that allowed him to take the liberties he did is truly astounding. Tell you the truth, my previous knowledge of Oscar Wilde consisted of anecdotes and some smart epitaph on a tombstone. Listening to this makes me want to read and hear more of his work.
    I also have to say that the LATW did a wonderful job. I only wish I had been there to see it on stage. The audio was great and opened up my imagination. Exquisite work!
