Salome in Opera and on Film


Salome in Opera and on Film

Co-presented with the UCLA Department of Music

Inspired by the multi-faceted tale of the biblical figure Salome, this music and cinema event presents works ranging from the avant garde to high camp and from the scandalous to the sublime. The program includes excerpts from Massenet’s Herodiade and Strauss’s Salome performed live, as well as selections from both the 1923 film Salome starring silent film actress Alla Nazimova and the 1953 version with Charles Laughton as Herod.

In conjunction with A Strange Magic: Gustave Moreau’s Salome.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 for 3 hours.

Public programs are made possible by Hammer Members and the generosity of Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and an anonymous donor.
