“Salomé, Salomé, dance for me.
I pray thee dance for me...”
Sexual, fiery, dangerous and decadent…
King Herod asks Salomé to dance for him... this request leads to The Dance of the Seven Veils and one of the most shocking, thrilling and scandalous climaxes ever seen on stage.
Originally banned in Britain, Wilde’s outrageously provocative Salomé comes to the stage in this exotic and exquisite new production and features as the final production in our second year-long residency at The Greenwich Theatre.
Salomé is produced in association with the Greenwich Theatre.
