Event description

Description

Dark, dramatic, and groundbreaking — when Elektra premiered in 1909, the New York Times described the opening night audience as "numbed, stunned, and hynotized" before they "burst into a spontaneous roar of cheers and applause." What made this Strauss opera an instant classic? Find out at our Opera 101 discussion hosted by musicologist Stephan Bonfield!

Grab a drink and follow Elektra's journey through history, including its origins in Greek drama and adaptation into opera's greatest psychological thriller. You don't want to miss this exciting event before witnessing the Alberta premiere of Elektra in March.
