With its explosive score, erotically-charged plot, and infamous “Dance of the Seven Veils,” Richard Strauss’s Salome caused a scandal when first premiered—and its impact is no less earth-shattering today. Headlined by world-renowned soprano Jennifer Holloway, a star-studded cast joins Music Director Juraj Valčuha and the orchestra for the biggest concert production in Houston Symphony history, including stunning scenic projections, stylized costumes, theatrical lighting, and custom-built design and staging elements to immerse you and transport you.

RUN TIME: 1 hour, 50 minutes
