Salome, Bloody, Salome

Salome rehearsals are underway. And it's going to be a bloody one. Speaking with our director, Sean Curran, he explains that by the end of the opera quarts of blood will have been spilled on stage. 

And some of it is edible!

Since we here at Aria Serious are big fans of Halloween parties (especially in the middle of January) our lovely Production Crew shared their recipes for stage blood with us. 

The first two recipes are edible, the last is not. All three are incredibly messy and sticky. Fun!

Make a batch of the edible ones - we did - we use it as a condiment for ice-cream , waffles, oh, who are we kidding - we eat this stuff straight from the jar with a spoon.

Edible blood for Jochanaan’s head:

1 gallon Karo Syrup
1 cup Red Food Coloring
1 cup Chocolate Flavored Syrup
1 tbsp Blue Food Coloring
1 tbsp Green Food Coloring

Edible blood for the face of the Jochanaan head:

1 cup Karo Syrup
1 cup Peanut Butter
½ cup Chocolate Syrup
½ cup Red Food Coloring

Washable Blood (for when Narraboth stabs himself on stage):

1 Gallon Karo Syrup
1 cup Red Food Coloring
1.5 oz Green Food Coloring
1 oz Yellow Food Coloring
1 cup Dreft Baby detergent   

Salome opens January 28, 2012.
