From an email promo for Washington National Opera’s current production of Elektra:

See Susan Bullock and Christine Goerke Sing Elektra!

Washington National Opera stars Susan Bullock and Christine Goerke are featured in these extended excerpts and interviews from a recent production of Strauss’ Elektra in Florence, Italy, directed by Robert Carsen and conducted by Seiji Ozawa. Note: The interviews and subtitles are in Italian, and Clip Two contains nudity.

But, on the other hand, La Cieca thinks perhaps (just perhaps) nudity might be preferable to some of the costuming for this production, which our informant describes as “a particularly overwrought drag show.”

you gotta see mutter every night or you can't see mutter at all
