NT Live: Salome

From the Olivier Theatre, National Theatre

Showing Times

The story has been told before, but never like this: an occupied desert nation, a radical from the wilderness on hunger strike, and girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world. This charged retelling turns the famous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production which will be broadcast live from the stage of the National Theatre. "Epic. A near-perfect production." Guardian on Les Blancs

The performance is 2 hours long and will run straight through, with no interval.
