Strauss
Elektra

An all-star cast delivers a stunningly dramatic performance of Strauss’s landmark opera: Inge Borkh sings the title role of the royal daughter obsessed with avenging her father’s murder. Leonie Rysanek is her sister, Chrysothemis, who longs for peace of mind and a normal life. The great Jean Madeira is their guilt-ridden mother, Klytämnestra, and Hermann Uhde sings Orest, the long-lost brother who finally brings about revenge. Ramon Vinay co-stars as Aegisth and Joseph Rosenstock conducts.
