About

Join us live at the Staatsoper Hamburg as iconoclastic stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov and distinguished conductor Kent Nagano join forces once again for an electrifying new production of Richard Strauss's Elektra! Amid eye-popping sets designed by Tcherniakov himself, the characters populating this monument of Greek tragedy come to life thanks to an absolutely brilliant cast—including the legendary Violeta Urmana in the role of Clytemnestra, Aušrinė Stundytė as Elektra (a role she played to great acclaim at the 2020 Salzburg Festival), renowned tenor Lauri Vasar as Elektra's younger brother Orestes, and excellent American soprano Jennifer Holloway as Chrysothemis. Under Nagano's expert direction, the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra bring refinement and spirit to Strauss's score, which calls for an unusual lineup of wind instruments—including the heckelphone and contrabassoon!
