“Salome’s Dance” is in three movements:
- The Baptist
Here John makes prophetic statements towards Herod and his Queen.
- The Seduction
Salome dances to gain the head of the Baptist.
- Herod’s Madness
The King’s fury at his murderous actions.
The premiere of “Salome’s Dance” was at the Cramphorn Theatre in Chelmsford in 2009, another performance followed at St Martin’s in the Fields in 2010 and several conservatoire and theatre performances have followed since.
