The Venue's History in few words …

For more than two centuries, the Theater an der Wien has enchanted the public with its exceptional acoustics and its authentic and intimate atmosphere, and is one of the most beautiful and traditional stages in Vienna. 

Emanuel Schikaneder, a man of the theatre, singer and friend of Mozart and especially librettist of the Magic Flute, had this theatre built in 1801. Always open to innovation, this extraordinary theatre has had a series of historical premieres, including Beethoven's only opera "Fidelio", Die Lustige Witwe, Die Fledermaus and most of J. Strauss' operettas.

Salome is the most attention-grabbing and an incredible French play which was written by Oscar Wilde. The play has been translated further to German wordings, by Richard Strauss and is based on Hedwig Lanchmann translation.

This play by Richard Strauss is renowned for it is referred to as the dance of seven veils based on biblical account.
The play focuses on the Herodias daughter, her bizarre relationship with john the Baptist leads to her end and her father. It has a superfluous disgusting preceding scene in which Salome declare her love and kisses the detached head of John the Baptist.
