Salome: Woman of Valor
Tickets: Reserved seating $25 – 40, sold through Oberon.
Innovative, transformative and daring, Salomé: Woman of Valor is the culmination of five years of work by Grammy Award-winning composer/trumpeter Frank London and celebrated poet/performer Adeena Karasick. This “spoken word opera” features live music, poetry, dance and video, that refutes Oscar Wilde’s misogynist and anti-Semitic interpretation of Salome “and recaptures her rightful place in Jewish history as a powerful revolutionary matriarch.” Artist talk back to follow performance. JArts was proud to be a significant supporter in the project’s Kickstarter campaign.
REVIEW VANCOUVER: “Salomé: Woman of Valor is a spectacularly unique, sixty-minute spoken-word opera that incorporates: interpretative dance, poetry, evocative avant-garde music and multi-media.”
