Elektra (Richard Strauss)

The Salzburg Festival opens the summer of 2020 with a work which played a major role in the oeuvre of all three Festival founders – Richard Strauss, Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Max Reinhardt: Elektra by Richard Strauss.

The role of Elektra will be embodied by the Lithuanian rising star Aušrine Stundyte. That of Chrysothemis will be sung by Asmik Grigorian. They are joined by Tanja Ariane Baumgartner as Clytemnestra, Michael Laurenz as Aegisth and Derek Welton as Orest.
