Strauss's opera Salome is a psychosexual drama full of excruciatingly beautiful music

If you’re easily offended, don’t go and see Salome
9 Jun 12 / London 24
Royal Opera’s brutal but engrossing Salome
7 Jun 12 / Seen and Heard
It remains a good-looking show
7 Jun 12 / The Stage
Musically the performance mostly impressed
6 Jun 12 / Musical Criticism
The production strikes me as a frigid, unatmospheric and stilted mess
6 Jun 12 / Opera Britannia
A limp revival
5 Jun 12 / Telegraph
The very special contribution from the pit may be the main reason to catch this particular run
5 Jun 12 / The Guardian
David McVicar's tawdry, yet gripping, production of Salome returns to Covent Garden
5 Jun 12 / Music OMH
Sex and a spoilt brat in David McVicar's production of Richard Strauss's opera
2 Jun 12 / Evening Standard
A musical triumph, visually this Salome is a bloody mess
2 Jun 12 / The Arts Desk
On the grim stage there was a sense that something nasty could erupt at any moment
2 Jun 12 / Classical Source
A curiously uneven night’s entertainment
2 Jun 12 / What's on Stage
