“If you had looked at me you would have loved”
This is one of the phrases that the last act ends Salome. With it he addresses the severed head Jochanaan and try and find an excuse for his macabre decision. This same sentence could be applied to that part of the audience who did not know or did not want to watch Carsen production presented at the Real Tetro. If they had done, you fall in love with this Salome Robert Carsen is almost inevitable.
