German soprano Maida Hundeling returns to the Edmonton stage in the title role of Salome, for Edmonton Opera's 2013/14 season-opening production. Last seen as Leonore in 2012's Fidelio, Hundeling has the stamina and power in her voice to sing over Strauss' tumultuous orchestration for the seductive and shocking opera. Purchase your tickets for Oct. 26 (8 p.m.), Oct. 29 (7:30 p.m.) or make it a Halloween date night on Oct. 31 (7:30 p.m.)! Tickets available by calling the box office at 780.429.1000 or online.
