Met Opera LIVE: Strauss' ELECKTRA - New Production

Broadcast LIVE from New York!

Director Patrice Chéreau 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—as the title heroine. Waltraud Meier is Elektra’s fearsome mother, Klytämnestra, and Adrianne Pieczonka and Eric Owens are Elektra’s troubled siblings. Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts.

Approximate running time: 2 hours 10 min.
