Stage Director

Strauss’s Salome – Toledo Opera (2009) – The Blade

Toledo Opera’s new production Salome is magnificent. Set in sections around a central ramp and beneath diagonal scaffolding, James Marvel’s staging is irreverent and fresh. Created right here is the sort of wonderfully bold and artful performance one might expect to see in bigger cities: Chicago, New York, London, Berlin, where innovation is expected. This is a must-see performance.
