Strauss
Elektra

Met Music Director James Levine brings aching lyricism and dramatic intensity to one of opera’s most gripping scores. The great Hildegard Behrens takes on the towering title role of a murdered king’s daughter obsessed with avenging her father’s death. Brigitte Fassbaender is magnetic as Klytämnestra, Elektra’s mother, and Deborah Voigt delivers a moving portrayal of Chrysothemis. Donald McIntyre as Orest and James King as Aegisth complete the all-star cast. This performance is taken from the DVD box set celebrating 40 Years of James Levine at the Met.
