THE latest National Theatre Live production to be broadcast at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan will be Salomé.

The story has been told before but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

This charged retelling to be screened on Thursday June 22 (7pm) turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production which will be broadcast live from the stage of the National Theatre.

“It looks amazing – with restlessly rotating stages, slow-mo physicality, cinema-epic robes and tableaux vivants worthy of Caravaggio,” says the Daily Telegraph, while the Sunday Times describes it as “a beautiful, mesmerising production. A bold new interpretation.”

Tickets for National Theatre Live screenings are priced £12.50 full price (£11.50 concessions) and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, on-line at or via smartphones.
