The Metropolitan Opera in New York now has Elektra tickets available for sale
at StubHub.com, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a historic Greek tale beautifully rewritten by Richard Strauss. The story
of Elektra is a beautiful tale of revenge, which has come down through the years as a legacy from two of Greece’s
greatest playwrights, Sophocles and Euripides, both incredible artists in their own right.
Elektra is named after the main character of the opera, a beautiful Greek woman whose mind is twisted by violence when
her father is murdered by his own wife. Her life becomes ensconced in darkness as she desperately seeks for revenge, but
her one hope lies in a sister who is too timid to help carry out her plan. However, her dream of retribution will come from
another, unlooked for source, but what will become of her in the end?
Elektra is an opera that you are certainly going to want to see, as a significant marriage between ancient Greek playwriting
and 19th Century opera. Presented in all its glory by the Metropolitan and by several key actors and actresses, this incredible
story is one that you will not want to miss. Act fast, before all the Elektra
tickets are taken, because this is one performance that you will be sad that you missed!
