‘Salome’ screening Monday at Mondavi

By From page A11 | January 30, 2013

The Mondavi Center will present a high-definition screening of the San Francisco Opera’s 2009 production of “Salome” at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, in Jackson Hall. Considered scandalous when it premiered a century ago with its provocative “Dance of the Seven Veils,” composer Richard Strauss’ adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s play has not lost its ability to shock, and it’s not a piece for young kids. Set in biblical times, this erotically charged opera centers on a tangled triangle: the persecuted John the Baptist, a lecherous King Herod and the monarch’s pathologically seductive stepdaughter, Salome. German soprano Nadja Michael gives a sensual reading of the title role.  Tickets are $20 general, $10 for students, available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
