This work offers a study of Oscar Wilde's Salome, a play regarded as central to his artistic achievement. It provides a stage-history of this controversial work, and its transformation into opera, dance and film. Beginning with Sarah Bernhardt's aborted production of 1892, the book surveys Salome's principal realizations in the European theatre, including Lugne-Poes Parisian premiere of 1896, Reinhardt's Berlin productions of 1902-1903, attempts at presentation in pre-revolutionary Russia and the play's impact on the English stage between 1911 and 1990. A separate chapter explores further interpretations including Aubrey Beardsley's challenging illustrations, Strauss's operatic version and the provocative films created by Alla Nazimova and Ken Russell.
