The theatre censor forbade Gustav Mahler from including "Salome" in the Hofoper programme. The first Viennese production of the work therefore took place in 1910 at the Volksoper, where the opera now returns 101 years later. At that time "Salome", which was based on Oscar Wilde’s play, offended ideas of "morality". Today, the third opera by the Bavarian master composer is regarded as an epochal masterpiece of music theatre.
