Performers act passionately to show the Salome’s beauty and the deep emotions in the story on September 5 in Kunming, capital of southwest China’s Yunnan Province. Audiences were deeply attracted by the actors and gave applauses.

Kunming Theater has been under the preparation for their performance for nearly half a month, and workers in the theater changed the floor board and mopped the floor by cola to prevent performers from slipping.

Salome is known from the New Testament. Another source from Antiquity, Flavius Josephus's Jewish Antiquities, gives her name and some detail about her family relations.

Christian traditions depict her as an icon of dangerous female seductiveness, for instance depicting as erotic her dance mentioned in the New Testament (in some later transformations further iconised to the dance of the seven veils), or concentrate on her lighthearted and cold foolishness that, according to the gospels, led to John the Baptist's death.
