THE GREAT DECADE IN OPERA: RICHARD STRAUSS’ SALOME
CCM Philharmonia
Featuring faculty artists Amy Johnson, Kenneth Shaw and Allan Glassman, along with several student soloists
Mark Gibson, music director and conductor
Robin Guarino, stage director

The capstone of CCM’s festival celebrating "The Great Decade," Richard Strauss's 1905 masterpiece Salome represents the epitome of pre-World War I decadence, opulence and extravagance. An adaptation of Oscar Wilde's controversial stage work of the same name, this staging is an hour and a half of irresistible drama and ecstatic hyper-romanticism. It is a must see for opera fans, theatre enthusiasts and lovers of massive orchestral sound.
