About the Event

Discover Massenet's famous opera 'Hérodiade' in a concert version at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

At the center of Massenet's Hérodiade, premiered in Brussels in 1881, is not the royal child‐woman Salome, but her mother Hérodias, the wife of King Herod. While Strauss will later open the door to the 20th century with his first operatic world success Salome, Massenet celebrates the grand opera of the 19th century with pathos and pose. With a queen who, out of jealousy, causes the death of her own daughter, a mysterious astrologer, a prophet who is not inaccessible to the feelings of love, a ruler who is weak in decision‐making and a heroically loving princess, Massenet offers a multitude of striking operatic characters and gives the plot a dazzling 'couleur locale' by processing Hebrew and Oriental motifs.
