Patricia was a trooper and she did remove herclothes. As did Karita Mattila in 2002 (year?)(in this production). Mattila's vocal and dramatic 
interpretations were unforgettable.

Well, Salome was unhinged to begin with! And this opera is about debauchery
and unstable characters that were evil. Other than the voice of Salome, does
anyone one mention the production on opera-l? It should be overwhelmingly
lavish, Salome has to be seductive. Does she remove her clothes? I've seen
three productions of this opera, the best with Maria Ewing in Los Angeles,
where she opens her robes briefly and is totally nude - the opera came to a
stop while the audience roared their approval. In London's ENO, the Salome
was American I forgot her name, she shed her clothes among a topless female
cast. 

Cheers,
