Swedish soprano Iréne Theorin gives an impressive role debut as Elektra,
just as Wagner singer Waltraud Meier as Klytämnestra. They are
complemented by Eva-Maria Westbroek's Chrysothemis and René Pape's
Orest. In his interpretation of Strauss' one-act masterpiece, conductor
Daniele Gatti explores the radical side of the Expressionist score, while
not neglecting the late 19th-century lyricism either. His musical vision
harmonizes perfectly with the forbidding atmosphere conveyed by director
Nikolaus Lehnhoff and his set designer.
