Live streamLive stream

Strauss's 'Elektra' is a one-act opera to a German-language libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, which he adapted from his 1903 drama Elektra. While based on ancient Greek mythology, the opera is highly modernist and expressionist. Hofmannsthal and Strauss's adaptation of the story focuses tightly on Elektra, thoroughly developing her character by single-mindedly expressing her emotions and psychology as she meets with other characters, mostly one at a time. Performers:

Elena Pankratova: Elektra.
Michael Volle: Orest.
Michaela Schuster: Klytämnestra.
Simone Schneider: Chrysothemis.

Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Andrés Orozco-Estrada.
