Salome / Teatro alla Scala

A spotlight on Damiano Michieletto produced Salome play at Teatro alla Scala in Milan.

A spotlight on Damiano Michieletto produced Salome, accompanied by Oscar Wilde’s sensitive text, showcased from 14 to 31 of January at Teatro La Scala in Milan under the direction of Axel Kober and Michael Güttler. In 1928 “Salome” was conducted at La Scala by Richard Strauss in person, and for this revival, the stage director modified some mis-en-scene’s aspects, emphasising the parallelism between Hamlet and Salome, who both live the drama of an uncle who killed their father and married their mother. The opera’s protagonist, victim of this trauma, will end up freeing herself from both the cumbersome mother figure and that of her uncle, paying this freedom with death.
