Description

South African director Yael Farber, called "one of the most memorable voices on the British stage," (The Guardian), has crafted a spectacular new production of "Salome." This hit was filmed live at London's National Theatre and is presented on screen at the Hammer Theatre in San Jose, which offers an upscale theatre setting with top-of-the-line laser projection and Constellation sound technology. This charged production re-imagines the biblical princess who demanded the head of John the Baptist on a plate, recasting her as principled and calculating with a political agenda, rather than a monstrous, heartless harlot. With stunning visual effects including a cascading sand storm, this production -- filmed live at London's National Theatre -- premiered in the U.S. where it was hailed as "Brilliant. Dream-like. Agile. Intriguing," (The Washington Post), "Exquisitely beautiful to watch even as it challenges and provokes," (Broadway World), and "Magnificent, hypnotic, and quite magical" (DC Theatre Scene).
