Canadian Opera Company

Composer(s): Richard Strauss

directed by:
James Robinson

Christine Goerke
Erin Wall
Susan Bullock
Wilhelm Schwinghammer

Richard Strauss’ twisted psycho-drama, Elektra, returns to the Canadian Opera Company with star soprano Christine Goerke in the title role. The one-act opera is a modern take on the Greek myth of Elektra, whose single-minded quest for revenge takes family dysfunction to a whole new level. American director James Robinson revives this psychologically complex production set in a nightmarish world with expressionist design elements influenced by artists Francis Bacon and Edvard Munch.

“The perfect mid-winter jolt.”

“Simply must-see material.”
