On February 9, Eva Marton joined the very select sorority of sopranos who have sung all three leading female roles in Elektra when she made her role debut as Klytämnestra at Liceu in Barcelona. (Come to think of it, there are only two other members of that club, Dame Gwyneth Jones and Leonie Rysanek!) La Cieca thought it only proper that we honor Marton by hearing her perform a moment or two of each of her Elektra roles.

Chrysothemis (1978)

Elektra (1990)

Klytämnestra (2008)

And here are the final moments of the opera and the curtain calls with Deborah Polaski (Elektra) and Ann-Marie Backlund (Chrysothemis). Note how the dead Klytämnestra is the final image seen in the opera!
