About

In few words:

“Over the course of a slow twilight”. Such was the stage direction which Hofmannsthal gave for a performance of Elektra, the one-act tragedy of unheard-of darkness and violence by Richard Strauss. It is also an expression often used to describe the waning days of the Austro- Hungarian Empire and cosmopolitan Europe, namely, the opening years of the 20th century. Everything in Robert Carsen’s production, from the shadow play and spectral apparitions to the choreography, contributes to the sense of impending doom. With its monumental orchestra and voices pushed to the limits, post-Wagnerism reaches its most extreme limits and ignites once and for all in Elektra.
