Omer Meir Wellber with Salome at the Volksoper in Vienna (September 2023)
Today, 15 September, Omer Meir Wellber presents an opera production at the Volksoper Wien that is very special for him – Richard Strauss’ Salome. Omer Meir Wellber had a special relationship with Luc Bondy (1948 – 2015) since his collaboration with him for a production of Rigoletto at the Theater an der Wien in 2011 and his direction of two further productions, La Traviata (2012) and Il Trovatore (2013), during Luc Bondy’s directorship of the Wiener Festwochen. Now Luc Bondy’s production of Salome, which premiered at the Salzburg Festival in 1992, is premiering in Vienna under the musical direction of Omer Meir Wellber in a scenic rehearsal by Marie-Louise Bischofberger-Bondy.
