"Richard Strauss stuns the audience with his hair-raising drama about Elektra, obsessed with avenging her father’s murder. This production is by Staffan Valdemar Holm, who has also directed the award-winning Der Ring des Nibelungen at the Royal Swedish Opera. Conducted by the Royal Swedish Opera Music Director Alan Gilbert."
