Cher Public

Elektral college

In preparation for the big night on Wednesday at Carnegie Hall, La Cieca thought the cher public might like to share some of their favorite Elektra videos and anecdotes. Your doyenne gets the ball rolling right after the jump.  

To begin with, here’s the cleanest dub I’ve ever seen of a the demented “Orange” Elektra featuring Gwyneth Jones and Leonie Rysanek.

And here, a fragment of what looks like a very interesting production indeed by Peter Konwitschny, featuring Renée Morloc as Klytämnestra.
