Description of Event:
The genius director Patrice Chereau (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, Klytamnestra. Soprano Adrienne Pieczonka and bass Eric Owens are Elektra’s troubled siblings. Chereau’s musical collaborator, Esa-Pekka Salonen, conducts.

High definition satellite broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.
