This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

This opera has been described as "the longest single smile in the German language". But Roland Matthews indicates that violence is not far beneath the surface of this portrait of medieval Nuremberg. Arnold Whittall's analysis gives a bird's-eye view of the complexity of the score. Timothy McFarland explores the significance of the choice of subject: that nostalgia for a pre-industrial community, which was a symptom of the German nationalist movement. The long text has many subtleties which opera audiences can hardly appreciate without reading it, and the musical themes are numbered to indicate
