A performance of Strauss' Salome will be streamed live from the Verbier Festival on Sunday, August 1 at 19.00 local time, which translates to 1:00 p.m. ET. Since only one performance is taking place, I'm inclined to think that this will be a concert version, but I'm really not certain.

Salome: Deborah Voigt

Herodias: Gwyneth Jones

Herod: Siegfried Jerusalem

Jochanaan: Evgeny Nikitin

Narraboth: John Tessier

conductor: Valery Gergiev

The opera can be viewed either on Medici TV, which requires viewers to sign in, or on Arte Liveweb, which does not.

Gergiev, hmmm? Should be interesting. Thank you as always for these alerts, volcanohunter.

Ugh, I heard Gergiev conduct Salome at the Met back in 2004 with Mattila. The conducting was GRUESOME with no feel at all for Strauss. Actually

all my non-Russian opera experiences with Gergiev have been negative; Verdi, Wagner sounded very out of sorts. Very different from the Russian rep, where he seems to have a terrific infinity.

I am interested in watching the live stream for this Salome tomorrow on the

liveweb.arte site. Can anyone tell me exactly how do do this?

The site is in French, and do I need to download anything to watch it, or this there some sort of direct link to the feed?

Or is there simply one button to click to get the feed?

many thanks in advance.

The performance is now available on demand and will remain available free of charge until September 30, after which it goes behind the Medici paywall.

If you haven't had a chance to watch it yet, Chenier631, the links from the original post will take you where you need to go. On Arte Liveweb you need only to click on the play icon in the middle of the video screen. Once the program starts to play, you can select the full-screen icon in the upper right-hand corner of the video screen. Medici TV has an English interface, if you prefer. Watching there requires creating and signing in to a free account, which is easily done. All the performances from the Verbier Festival are grouped together there in the "what's on" folder.
