TULSA, OKLAHOMA (March 25, 2022) – Tulsa Opera premieres a new production of Richard Strauss’ Salome that will take celebrating the return of live performances to a new level by offering members of the audience the opportunity to not only watch the action, but to be immersed in it over two performances Friday, April 29 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 1 at 2:30 p.m. at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. The principal cast includes Julia Mintzer making her Salome role debut, tenor Jay Hunter Morris as Herod, and mezzo-soprano Katharine Goeldner as Herodias—all three singers making their Tulsa Opera debuts—and bass-baritone Wayne Tigges as Jochanaan.

Artistic Director Tobias Picker, says: “Here at Tulsa Opera we have waited more than two long years to celebrate our operatic return to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center and we are delighted that it will be with such a creative, exciting, and unusual production directed and designed by Tulsa native and Cherokee nation member Thaddeus Strassberger who is making his Tulsa Opera debut. We have an especially powerful cast to provide new life for one of the cornerstones of the early twentieth century operatic canon. I am especially pleased for this to be Julia Mintzer’s debut moving from mezzo-soprano roles to the soprano repertoire and expect we will witness the arrival of a major new Salome and enjoy an unforgettable, celebratory, and sensational close to the season.”
