From the Inside Flap:

A dark tale of hubris, lust, and self-destruction as told by a man who famously fell prey to those same impulses in his own life. Oscar Wilde wrote his original interpretation of the Biblical story of Salom in French, and the play was so controversial that no theatre in England would produce it for nearly four decades.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast production starring:

Rosalind Ayres as Herodias, James Marsters as Iokanaan, Andre Sogliuzzo as The Young Syrian and others, Kate Steele as Salom, John Vickery as Herod, and Matthew Wolf as Page of Herodias and others.

(DIGITAL ONLY: Director Michael Hackett and Wilde scholar Dr. David Rodes discuss Salom 's history and where it fits stylistically in Wilde's canon.)

Music by Djivan Gasparyan and Lian Ensemble. Directed by Michael Hackett. Recorded by L.A. Theatre Works before a live audience.

About the Author:

Oscar Wilde was an Anglo-Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and critic. He is regarded as one of the greatest playwrights of the Victorian Era. In his lifetime he wrote nine plays, one novel, and numerous poems, short stories, and essays. Wilde was a proponent of the Aesthetic movement, which emphasized aesthetic values more than moral or social themes. This doctrine is most clearly summarized in the phrase 'art for art's sake'. Besides literary accomplishments, he is also famous, or perhaps infamous, for his wit, flamboyance, and affairs with men. He was tried and imprisoned for his homosexual relationship (then considered a crime) with the son of an aristocrat.

Book Description Dover Publications Inc., United States, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Outraged by the sexual perversity of this one-act tragedy, Great Britain's Lord Chamberlain banned Salomé from the national stage. Symbolist poets and writers -- Stéphane Mallarmé and Maurice Maeterlinck among them -- defended the play's literary brilliance. Beyond its notoriety, the drama's haunting poetic imagery, biblical cadences, and febrile atmosphere have earned it a reputation as a masterpiece of the Aesthetic movement of fin de siècle England.Written originally in French in 1892, this sinister tale of a woman scorned and her vengeance was translated into English by Lord Alfred Douglas. The play inspired some of Aubrey Beardsley's finest illustrations, and an abridged version served as the text for Strauss' renowned opera of the same name. This volume reprints the complete text of the first English edition, published in 1894, and also includes "A Note on Salomé" by Robert Ross, Wilde's lifelong friend and literary executor. Students, lovers of literature and drama, and admirers of Oscar Wilde and his remarkable literary gifts will rejoice in this inexpensive edition. Seller Inventory # AAC9780486421278
