Salome at Opera Australia

“Lise Lindstrom met its exacting demands with power, beauty and credible physicality. She moved from petulant teenager as she rejected Herod’s advances, to her “obstinato” young woman, insisting she will have her way as she asserts Ich will dein mund kussen, Jochanaan (I will kiss your lips Jokanaan) finally realising her ghastly sexual desire. Lindstrom’s Liebestod in the last moments of the opera was a tour de force.”
