Whoever thought Salome’s “Dance of the Seven Veils” done in 8-bit graphics would be laugh-out-loud funny? Christian Zagler’s SALOME IN LOW LAND (Austria, 2005) is an amusing and well-executed mashup of opera and old school video game graphics. For a primer on the opera SALOME, you may want to check out this entry at Wikipedia.
