Damiano Michieletto directed the opera Salome 2021 exclusively for television. After the theater closures, the production of Salome can finally be performed in front of an audience.
Zubin Mehta conducts the opera with which he made his La Scala debut in 1974. The stage design by Paolo Fantin with strict geometric scenes and a menacing black moon underlines the somber scene of the tragedy. The Lithuanian soprano Vida Mikneviciute makes her debut at La Scala as Salome. Michael Volle interprets the Jochanaan with his impressive voice.
