Salome, that dancing seductress who demanded the head of John the Baptist, has been reclaimed by Yael Farber in this new feminist interpretation (the RSC stages Oscar Wilde’s more familiar take next month). Or at least that’s the intention, but Farber’s production sacrifices the personal for the mythic – ironically once again losing the woman history erased in a storm of overblown symbolism.
