Strauss
Elektra

Susan Bullock takes on one of opera’s most challenging roles as the title heroine of Strauss’s powerful drama, based on the ancient Greek myth of murder and revenge. Deborah Voigt reprises her acclaimed portrayal of Chrysothemis, Elektra’s sister, and Felicity Palmer gives a chilling performance as their mother, Klytämnestra. Evgeny Nikitin is Orest, the long-lost brother whose return brings events to a deadly climax, and Wolfgang Schmidt sings Aegisth. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads this massive score.
