Program notes

After the opening concert performance of Salomé, the Verbier Festival presents a second Richard Strauss masterpiece in concert: Elektra. A festival highlight featuring Maestro Esa-Pekka Salonen at the baton—a seasoned conductor of this work—, the formidable trio of Lise Lindstrom, Ingela Brimberg, and Anna Larsson in the leading female roles, and Eric Owens in the role of Orest.
