* HonorBeforeReason: Herod keeps his promise to Salome, even though he knows it will get him into major hot water. (Well, it's either this trope or AllMenArePerverts.)

Not to be confused with the Xandria album by the name Salome, the Seventh Veil, whose title was likely inspired by the play.

* PlayingGertrude: There is often an interesting aversion in which the soloist playing Salome is often far ''older'' than the soloist playing Herodias, her mother. This is probably because Salome is a central role and Herodias is at most a bit-part: older opera singers tend to have the prestige and clout that gets them the starring roles, and newbies are relegated to supporting roles. Therefore, as noted in the Creator/{{BBC}} production of ''Salome'', we get the incongruity of a [[FanDisservice fifty-year old daughter dancing a salacious striptease]] in front of her enthralled stepfather and twenty-something mother...

''Salome'' is a one-act play by OscarWilde. The play was first published in Wilde's not very fluent French in 1893, and was first produced in Paris three years later; the British CensorshipBureau forbade its production due to its scandalous sexual content.

** In the Ken Russell version, shots of Salome dancing are intercut with closeups of Herod's ugly leering face. Then Salome pulls a switch so the one dancing turns out to be a man when removing the final garment. Herod is not impressed.

''Salome'' caused renewed controversy when it was adapted into an opera by Richard Strauss. The opera's libretto follows the German translation of Wilde's French word for word (though abridged in some places). There have also been two film adaptations: a 1923 silent film and 1988's ''Salome's Last Dance''. The latter is a Ken Russell film that presents the play as a ShowWithinAShow being put on for Wilde himself by the staff of a London brothel. It was also done for cinemas as a straight filmed version of the play as directed by Creator/AlPacino (with the title role played by Creator/JessicaChastain in her first film).
