*Description: The poetic drama “Salome” was forbidden by the censorship of the Russian Tsars. However, in 1917 the play ran at both the Maliy and the Kamerniy Theaters, with Olga Gzovskaya starring at the Maliy, and the following cast at Kamerniy: Alice Koonen as Salome, Nikolay Tsereteli as Jokanaan. Roman Viktyuk followed Tairov, refusing a historical and domestic look on the plot, and turned Wilde’s “Salome” into a charming expression of an artist’s path in the world, where love and death coexsit. Nowadays, the drama “Salome” has become a kind of sartorial statement of Roman Viktyuk’s theatre, bringing to life the brightest and exotic lines of the director’s style.
