The opera is a mythic tale of prime-time murder, madness and stardom - the conflict of public celebrity and

personal creativity as seen through the morbid lens of contemporary media culture. This original tale is

inspired by events in the life of Maud Allan (1873 - 1956), with additional information coming from

"The Salome Dancer: The Life and Times of Maud Allan", by Felix Cherniavsky (McClelland & Stewart, 1991).
