Berliner Philharmoniker and Kirill Petrenko; New Production

Richard Strauss’s Elektra was the sensation that ushered in modernity by at the same time popularizing it. Heroes on the verge of madness, just what the audience loves! The world comes tumbling down upon us, specifically here: the Straussian orchestra. No fewer than 111 musicians conjure up magic that carries the singers and propels them forward: in our concert, legendary Wagner voices Nina Stemme in the title role and Michaela Schuster as Clytemnestra, who offer up plenty of mother-daughter psychodrama. The tempestuous duo is joined and brought down to earth by Elza van den Heever as Elektra's sister who yearns for love. The “Strauss Dream Team” of the 2023 Festival is back!
