ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

A dramatic and emotionally vivid telling of the final days of John the Baptist, a spiritual leader reduced to pawn in the lustful bargain between Herod and his own stepdaughter, Salome. Through the prism of an ancient story, Opera Omaha’s new production by director Christopher Alden asks a modern audience to explore the eternal tension in power dynamics between men and women. Conductor Stephen Stubbs returns to Opera Omaha to lead a blended ensemble of modern and Baroque period instruments.
