Dr. Robert Kelley Memorial Musicology Lecture Series

SUSAN MCCLARY, guest speaker The lurid biblical story of John the Baptist, King Herod, and Herod’s precocious stepdaughter, Salome, has fascinated artists and audiences for centuries, most famously perhaps in Richard Strauss’s 1905 opera. In this talk, the world-renowned musicologist and MacArthur Fellow Susan McClary compares Strauss’s depiction of Salome with an earlier musical version of that character— la Figlia in Alessandro Stradella’s oratorio San Giovanni Battista (1675)—who manages to triumph at the end. Not coincidentally, Stradella composed for Queen Christina of Sweden, the sole female patron in Rome at the time. This talk, which includes performed excerpts from Stradella’s stunning score, considers the reasons why femmes fatales ruled the operatic stage in the 17th no less than in the late 19th century.  Free
