Kirill Petrenko conducts Strauss’s “Elektra”

A woman in an exceptional situation: Elektra is driven by grief, pain and hatred. She wants to avenge the death of her father. The tragedy of the Greek king’s daughter was ideal operatic material for Richard Strauss, who describes the psychological profile of a desperate woman in stormy scenes. Kirill Petrenko conducts a concert performance of the opera. Nina Stemme, an acclaimed soloist in dramatic parts, sings the title role.
