James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
Considered scandalous a century ago, this adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s play has not lost its ability to shock. Set in Biblical times, the erotically charged opera centers on a tangled triangle: the persecuted John the Baptist, a lecherous King Herod and his pathologically seductive stepdaughter, Salome. Soprano Nadja Michael is mesmerizing in the title role opposite bass-baritone Greer Grimsley (Jokanaan) and tenor Kim Bogley (Herod). Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducts “with flair and muscle.” (San Francisco Chronicle). “All the zesty blood lust of a good vampire movie…bravely and marvelously macabre!” New York Times One hour 53 minutes with one intermission.
