The Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of The Royal Opera’s current production of "Elektra" on Wednesday, August 5 at 6:00 p.m.
Richard Strauss’s thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy. This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere. Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytämnestra.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theatre.
