Haymarket presents Maria Margherita Grimani’s 1715 oratorio La decollazione di San Giovanni Battista. At the feast of Herod, the beautiful princess Salome requests the head of John the Baptist as a punishment for insulting her mother, Herodias. Haymarket’s virtuosic vocal and instrumental soloists bring Grimani’s feverish tale of bloodthirsty revenge to life in the work’s modern premiere.

Pre-performance lecture: Presented at 6:45PM

Performance runtime: 2 hours, including one 20-minute intermission
