Salomé

5 Feb 2019

Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux’s new soundtrack to the cult 1923 silent movie Salomé makes its way to Brighton following its premiere at Leeds International Festival last year, commissioned by Opera North. It features the otherworldly voice and songwriting of Haley Fohr who has been compared with Nina Simone, Nico and even Scott Walker. Fohr brings a modern context and a more feminist commentary to the controversial Salomé. The silent film was a flop when it was first released but was rediscovered in the '70s and is now seen as the cornerstone of camp, treasured for its weirdly beautiful atmosphere and its notorious Russian star, Alla Nazimova.
