The Lithuanian soprano Aušriné Stundyté as vengeful and traumatized Elektra turns the opening of the festival into a knockout performance, while Asmik Grigorian draws the audience into a spell as her sister Chrysotemis. Tanja Ariane Baumgartner as Klytämnestra, Derek Welton as Orest and Michael Laurenz as Ägisth complete an ensemble of top-notch singers. The staging by Krzysztof Warlikowski of this work about matricide, obsession, revenge and physical degradation is a deep psychological study of a broken family. Franz Welser-Möst brings his trademark flair to the pit where the brilliantly effervescent Wiener Philharmoniker creates gloriously exultant Strauss moments.
