Vienna State Opera

Description of R. Strauss's Elektra from the Vienna State Opera's website:

Elektra marks the beginning of the long and fruitful relationship between congenial partners Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal. The single act opera - premiered in 1909 - tells a tale of a mythological family history caught between guilt and revenge, fate, redemption and downfall.
