Modern psychology made its first appearance on the opera stage with Richard Strauss’ masterpiece Salome. It is a short yet extremely powerful work; an inescapable lava flow of religion, sex and violence.
Cosima Wagner reproached Strauss for focusing on the ‘diabolic element’ of Oscar Wilde’s play ‘Salome’, on which the opera is based. Emperor Wilhelm II also had his reservations about the project, saying ‘(Strauss) will harm himself considerably with this’. On which the composer, looking back on a sensational success, remarked ‘I used the proceeds of this harm to build the villa in Garmisch!’
