Made in 1923, Salomé loosely follows the biblical story of King Herod and his desire for his young stepdaughter. It is Salomé’s desire for Jokanaan (John the Baptist) that causes her to dance before Herod….

Salomé is a visual feast. The stunning, art nouveau costumes and sets were designed by Natacha Rambova, and were inspired by the lavish illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley that accompanied the first edition of Wilde’s text. Along with Nazimova, they are, in many ways the stars of the film.

Inspired by early fragments of music from Judea and Syria, this version of Salomé is dominated by an assortment of drums, tambourines, castanets,  cymbals and Tibetan singing bowls. The music is performed by four percussionists, playing from two alloy towers on either side of the screen.
