Strauss's Elektra


Opera Broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera, New York, 160 min, 2016
in German, with Hungarian subtitles

Show times:

Director: Patrice Chéreau

Conductor: Esa-Pekka Salonen

Cast: Nina Stemme (Elektra), Adrianne Pieczonka (Chrysothemis), Waltraud Meier (Klytämnestra), Burkhard Ulrich (Aegisth), Eric Owens (Orest) 

The genius director Patrice Chéreau (From the House of the Dead) didn’t live to see his great Elektra production, previously presented in Aix and Milan, make it to the stage of the Met. But his overpowering vision lives on with soprano Nina Stemme—unmatched today in the heroic female roles of Strauss and Wagner—who portrays Elektra’s primal quest for vengeance. Legendary mezzo-soprano Waltraud Meier is chilling as Elektra’s fearsome mother, Klytämnestra. Soprano Adrianne Pieczonka and bass Eric Owens are Elektra’s troubled siblings. Chéreau’s musical collaborator, Esa-Pekka Salonen, conducts.
