This is my personal favorites of Salome-performances
The stage and scenery gets me straight into the action.

Karl Boehm and the orchestra sounds really great out of this
complex orchestral score, and some of the details are marvelous.

Teresa Stratas makes an excellent job as Salome.
The acting is very good, and her voice as well.

Its a performance for those who likes effects, and I do think the effects
serve the theme of the opera and its music very well.

Ever since I saw this magnificent film version of Strauss' SALOME on public television back in the 1970's, it immediately became my favorite opera. I waited for years until it appeared on a DGG LaserDisc and bought it. At that time I copied it to VHS and watched it so many times that it wore out. I then purchased the VHS version, and now plan to purchase it on DVD. It is still the quintessential Salome recording. It is better than any commercial recording of Salome thus far recorded. I own most of the complete studio and live recordings of this opera. The best live Salome of all time was Ljuba Welitsch, and Stratas, who is blessed with a similarly sweet, youthful voice and limitless vocal beauty and intensity, is stunning not only vocally, but visually. I met and spoke with Stratas after a performance of "The Bartered Bride" in Dallas [This was about 1979 or 1980 I believe.] She was incredibly beautiful and kind and I told her that her Salome was stupendous. She said that Karl Bohm's conducting was what really made it a thrilling performance. I agreed since Bohm was one of the greatest, if not the greatest conductor of Strauss' operas. But it was her performance that really sold me on this opera. Astrid Varnay's Herodias is of special interest since she was a great Salome back in the 1950's. Bernd Weikl is a strong and sympathetic Jokanaan, Hans Beier, a very emotional and exciting Herod. Wieslaw Ochmann's Narraboth is the best I've ever heard. This is the greatest film version of an operatic film I've ever seen. Karl Bohm's Elektra with Leonie Rysanek from 1980 is a close second.

Wow, I have seen a few different productions of this opera (live and on DVD) but this film, even if a little dated, does the opera perfect justice in my opinion. Teresa Stratas looks perfect in the part of Salome and her beautiful fluid voice is a joy to hear in such a difficult role. The sound quality given the time it was recorded is very good indeed and the slightly aged look of the video adds to the melodrama in my opinion. If it had been shot in widescreen (even then It was available for movies) it would have been a perfect experience. For this reason, 4 stars instead of 5.

Karl Böhm conducting brings the exotic and ripe score into life and adds to the cinematic experience,

If you love this opera, watch this film, you will be very glad you did

Cast (in credits order)
Teresa Stratas ... Salome
Bernd Weikl ... Jochanaan
Astrid Varnay ... Hérodias
Hans Beirer ... Herod
Wieslaw Ochman ... Narraboth
Hanna Schwarz ... Page of Herodias
Kurt Equiluz ... Third Jew

This is possibly the most musically perfect Salome available but as a performance on screen it is patchy.
Shot in the studio, the singers are lousy lip-synchronisers.
But if any DVD were to change my mind about the importance of this, it would be this one, mostly because of the extraordinary performance of a young, stunningly beautiful Teresa Stratas.
Her gradual decline from wilful petulance into obsessed insanity is remarkably vivid and harrowing; add a voice that's vibrant, clear and passionate and a kind of star-quality and you have what may be the perfect performance of the role.
I don't really understand those critics who found her voice too piercing.

The rest of the cast isn't quite up to Ms. Stratas's standards. Bernd Weikl's supremely wild and creepy Jochanaan is vocally very good if not on a par with Bryn Terfel's interpretation.
But Weikl on screen comes over more manic street preacher than divinely inspired prophet.

Yes, Astrid Varnay is a legendary talent, but I wish she and Hans Beirer weren't directed to be the comic relief in distractingly awful costumes (those dilapidated peacock feathers around Herodias's shoulders for example).

Also, I thought that The Dance of the Seven Veils fell slightly flat, with Stratas looking a little too much like ET under the blanket at the start of it and the introduction of some dancing-girl extras in stupid 70s outfits.

I got this because it looked like it could well be up to the standard of the similar Bohm Elektra film. And only watched once and Ive known the other for years but I think it is as good maybe. I dont think Richard Strauss is appreciated as he should be, if you hear/see Elektra Ariadne, and this evidently, done right, the results are hard to match. I think alot of the sound of Bluebeard's castle comes from Salome? excuse my ignorance if not but I think Bluebeard which is also wonderful came after. This dvd is really quite entertaining and funny in parts and I cant work out if its all intentional but it doesnt detract at all from the performance, singing, staging. Every body does a terrific job Teresa Stratas really acts it well as well as singing. I would say couldnt be better, only regret is you get slight detcahed experience because it is mimed. The Elektra dvd came with an extra dvd about the making of it with sensibly just a little of the cast singing because it could have put the film in the shade seeing them sing and act as good as that.
