From the House of Atreus

The team that made the Met’s 2009 production of From the House of the Dead one of the undisputed highlights of the Peter Gelb era will return five years from now to create a Richard Strauss tragedy.  According to Helsingin Sanomat, director Patrice Chéreau and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen will collaborate on a new production of Elektra in 2016, to be shared between the Met and La Scala.

    What about Herlitzius as Elektra? I listened to the broadcast from La Monnaie in 2010, and she was simply phenomenal. The metal in the top voice is just right for the role.
