By: Feb. 03, 2023

Get a first look at Canadian Opera Company's SALOME! A dance-perhaps the most famous one in history-precedes a macabre kiss and an execution in this opera by Richard Strauss. An explosive, modernist score propels the action, redefining musical storytelling.

Directed by Academy Award-nominated Atom Egoyan, this production stars Ensemble Studio graduate Ambur Braid-acclaimed for her recent tour de force performance in the title role at Frankfurt Opera-as Salome, alongside Karita Mattila and Michael Schade.
