Lyric Opera of Chicago
Elizabeth Byrne: Overseer
Using huge orchestral forces, Strauss takes the iconic Greek legend and ramps it up to fever pitch, giving audiences a 100-minute thrill ride that’s unparalleled in its intensity.
Elektra—a poisoned, shattered soul—witnessed the murder of her father King Agamemnon when she was just a child. And the killers? Elektra’s very own mother, Queen Clytemnestra, and her lover Aegisthus. Isolated and maltreated, Elektra now lives for just one thing—death for her mother at the hands of her brother Orestes. But when she’s told that he’s been killed, Elektra cracks—vowing to enact her own terrible revenge.
“There will be blood!” she screams—and so there is as Elektra hurtles to its cataclysmic conclusion.
