When the lights went out after the last orchestral shriek, a standing ovation warmer and more genuine than any I have experienced in Chicago broke out in the crowd.

Why See Lyric Opera of Chicago - Elektra?

Classical & Opera

Strauss' Thrilling Epic Opera Elektra

One of the most challenging pieces in the opera repertory, Strauss' colossal masterpiece Elektra boasts an incomparable heroine who stands tall as the composer's imposing orchestral waves of revenge and tragedy storm about her. Don't miss the edge-of-your-seat thriller as it returns to shake the very foundations of the Civic Opera Hall as part of Lyric Opera of Chicago's brand new 2018/19 season.

The operatic marathon that is Elektra is based on the ancient Greek tragedy and follows the Mycenaean princess as she tries to fight fate. When her father Agamemnon is murdered by her mother Klytemnestra, Elektra sets out for a bloody revenge that ends, as with most Greek tragedies, in the harrowing destruction of all. Brutal in its splendour, the towering finale is sure to leave your hairs standing on end.
