King Herod's lust for his step-daughter Salomé and her love for the prophet John the Baptist intertwine with Queen Herodias' fear and jealousy in Jules Massenet's dramatic masterpiece Hérodiade, presented by Washington Concert Opera on Sunday, November 20, 2016 at 6:00 pm. Based on Flaubert's take on the biblical story, WCO's production features soprano Joyce El-Khoury as Salomé and tenor Michael Fabiano as John. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton caught up with them before rehearsal to talk about the music, the drama, and how the singers' 12-year-friendship enhances their onstage presence.
