"SEE YOU AT THE THEATRE" ™
FLORIDA GRAND OPERA OPENS THE SEASON
WITH STRAUSS’S “SALOME”AT
THE BROWARD CENTER
With a bizarre brew of eroticism and religion, Richard Strauss’s "Salome” was so disturbing when it first appeared that it was banned in Vienna and London. Today, it’s lost none of its power to send shivers through the audience, and this production eerily captures all the depravity of King Herod’s court destruction in ancient Jerusalem.
Starring as the princess whose sexually charged
dance leads straight to her own destruction is Melody Moore, the dynamic soprano who has electrified the operas of Jánacék, Wagner and Puccini.
Join one of Florida Grand Opera’s leading opera experts for a witty, captivating, and always entertaining preview, one hour prior to each performance. Not only will you learn about the entire plot of the opera, you’ll also hear all the entertaining stories and back stage gossip, that is part of any opera.
The opera is sung in German with English and Spanish projected surtitles. Performances are February 8 and 10, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the Au-Rene Theatre at the Broward Center located at 201 S.W. Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $21 and up to $200 at the box office. For other information call 954-462-0222.
