A dramatic and emotionally vivid telling of the final days of John the Baptist, this new production follows the saga of a spiritual leader reduced to a pawn in a lustful and deadly bargain between King Herod and his own stepdaughter Salome. 

Through the prism of these ancient characters, the provocative and acclaimed director Christopher Alden asks a modern audience to explore the eternal tension in power dynamics between men and women in a unique found space with bold direction and contemporary design. 

Conductor and GRAMMY Award-winning early music specialist Stephen Stubbs (2014- Agrippina, 2016- Semele) returns to Opera Omaha to lead a stellar cast featuring the company debuts of countertenor Randall Scotting and soprano Liv Redpath, as well as the return of bass Andrew Harris (2018- Proving Up).  LESS
