The Opera “Salome” by Richard Strauss, based on the drama with the same name by Oscar Wilde, plays like the novel on a large terrace in Herod's palace in 20 AD. At the premiere in December of 1905, due to the scandalous content of the work, the audiences were shocked and even Marie Wittich, who played Salome at the premiere, refused to perform “the dance of the seven veils”. Nevertheless, the opera was a successful and had been performed in 50 other opera houses over the next two years.
