About the event

This royal family is set up for royal dysfunction. Elektra has just witnessed her own mother murder her father Agamemnon, the king of ancient Mycenae. Now that she knows whose hands are bloody, Elektra is hellbent on vengeance. But when her brother returns from exile to carry out her wishes, Elektra’s obsession for revenge pushes her fractured family to the brink of destruction.


Richard Strauss’ masterpiece inspired by the Greek tragedy returns with a new production from Francesca Zambello. Elektra is 100 minutes of power-packed, “fasten your seatbelt” opera, from its dramatic, harrowing music to its hair-raising finale. This acclaimed international cast includes superstar soprano Christine Goerke singing the title role of a daughter possessed, while acclaimed designer Bibhu Mohapatra returns to create eye-catching costumes for an elaborate Greek world. In her fixation on bloody revenge, will the determined princess finally find justice…or will her obsession consume her first?
