princess Salome - different kind of love - first opera in 2018 at ROH ! 

tonight is the opening night of Salome at the royal opera House – the first opera watched in 2018 – I loved the solid voice of Salome and the prisoner Jokanaan (the prophet) – it’s a complicated family story that Salome was tempted by her stepfather but Salome tempted the prisoner – the prophet – why do we loved the music from operas ? 477 more words
