When King Agamemnon is murdered by his devious wife Klytamnestra and her lover, his daughter Elektra vows bloodthirsty revenge in this highly charged tale of brutal violence and vengeful madness from Richard Strauss in collaboration with Hugo von Hofmannsthal.
Premiering in 1909, Elektra is Strass' masterpiece, a juggernaut of opera that shocks and explores the human capacity for loathing and murderous action. Soprano Christine Goerke stars as titular character at the Met for the first time, in Patrice Chereau's captivating production that returns after debuting last spring. Don't miss this chilling horror story that will send shivers down your spine long after you've left the auditorium!
