  • Book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove.
  • Music by Barbara Anselmi.

Audiences are cordially invited to the wedding of the year, and the most entertaining and hysterically funny musical comedies to come direct from Broadway to Miami in years. The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature; his mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And when the bride’s ex-boyfriend shows up, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than one can whistle, “Here Comes the Bride.” USA Today called this South Florida premiere “endearingly old-fashioned in spirit and decidedly contemporary in execution.

Salome by Richard Strauss - Miami

Next date: Jan 27, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

A depraved princess executes a frenzied dance of death.

With its bizarre brew of eroticism and religion, Richard Strauss’s Salome was so disturbing when it first appeared that it was banned in Vienna and London. Today, it’s lost none of its power to send shivers through the audience, and this production eerily captures all the depravity of King Herod’s court in ancient Jerusalem. Starring as the princess whose sexually charged dance leads straight to her own destruction is Melody Moore, the dynamic soprano who has electrified the operas of Janáček, Wagner, and Puccini. Come see Salome cast her potent spell over South Florida.
