a new play by Yaël Farber

Travelex £15 tickets
Running Time: About 1 hour and 45 minutes. There is no interval.

Salomé

The tale retold.

The story has been told before, but never like this.

An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

Internationally acclaimed director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the Olivier stage.

Please note: Salomé contains nudity, and the characters depict and make reference to sexual violence. If you would like more detail about the content of the production please call the Box Office on 020 7452 3000.

It looks amazing – with restlessly rotating stages, slow-mo physicality, cinema-epic robes and tableaux vivants worthy of Caravaggio

Daily Telegraph

Yaël Farber proves that she does riveting ritual intensity better than anybody else

A beautiful, mesmerising production. A bold new interpretation.
