As the 2015 Wexford Festival Opera approaches, Bernard Clarke presents another opportunity to hear Salomé by Antoine Marriotte , recorded at last year’s festival.
Composed by the French sailor-turned-composer Antoine Mariotte (1875-1944), Salomé is based on Oscar Wilde's 1891 play of the same name. Mariotte followed closely Wilde's French text, portraying the emotional extremes, passions and secret terrors of Hérode.
David Angus conducts the Wexford Festival Orchestra and cast including Na'ama Goldman (Salomé), Nora Sourouzian (Hérodias) and Scott Wilde (Hérode)
