About the Authors
  • This is the first book-length study of Oscar Wilde's play Salome. Often drawing on little-known sources, the authors provide a detailed stage history of this controversial work, and its transformation into opera, dance and film with such major innovators as Max Reinhardt, Richard Strauss, Serge Diaghilev, Peter Brook, Salvador Dali, Lindsay Kemp and Steven Berkoff contributing to Salome's contemporary reputation.

    • First book-length treatment of this play, including discussion of the play in film, dance and opera
    • Some rarely seen illustrations and a chronological table of selected productions
    • Fourth book in the new series Plays in Production
