This collection documents the period between 1895 and 1914 that was particularly rich in appearances of 'high art' Salomes on the Parisian lyric and dance stages. The eclectic and developing collection currently includes press materials surrounding the following theatrical events: the premiere of Richard Strauss's opera Salome in Dresden (1905), at the Théâtre de la Monnaie, Brussels (1907), at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris (1907) and at the Paris Opéra (1910); the premiere of Antoine Mariotte's opera Salomé in Lyon (1908) and at the Paris Opéra (1910); the 'Concerts de la Danse' given by Natalia Trouhanowa at the Théâtre du Châtelet (1912) which included performance of Florent Schmitt's La tragédie de Salomé. This edition was prepared by Louise Axon (Cardiff University), with the collaboration of Megan Varvir Coe (University of North Texas), under the direction of Clair Rowden (Cardiff University), and with the support of a CUROP grant from Cardiff University.
