Elektra

by Richard Strauss
Tragedy in one act
Poetry by Hugo von Hofmannsthal

Elektra witnesses her father being killed by his own wife. Elektra yearns for her brother Orest's return, hoping that he will avenge their father's death. But then she receives the news of Orest having been killed in an accident.
