A New Elektra

Hamburg, 1975

I recently found a fantastic new Elektra featuring America soprano, Brenda Roberts in the title role. Her success in the part is made all the more impressive when you consider she was still in her early 20s at the time of this performance.

She is joined by Arlene Saunders, Martha Mödl, Richard Cassilly and Tom Krause.

Another Elektra!

Paris, 1975

My second recent Elektra find is equally impressive.

It features the incomparable triumvirate of Birgit Nilsson, Leonie Rysanek, and Astrid Varnay and is conducted by Karl Böhm.
