After 20 minutes of listening to Racette, I was hoping Herod would have sung 
"Man tote dieses Weib"

Years ago, Carol Neblett did the full Monty in a production I believe some 
where in Florida. I saw the photo back stage when she sang in Cincinnati

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,


Clarissa Lablache Cheer
