Over the top recording of an over the topera
28 January 2006 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

A notorious production of Strauss' celebrated music-drama. Harry Kupfer's radical, dirty staging provoked catcalls at the otherwise decorous Vienna Staatsoper, the principals occasionally having to sing above the noise.

If Strauss' Salome becomes corrupted during that opera, so Elektra starts in that degenerate mindset. Tragedy is assured then - murder is not far off. The story is of how retribution comes about and the different power struggles in the face of this. Eva Marton has reached full operating capacity by the time the resolute Orest of Grundheber appears; Fassbaender earns her comeuppance with well-acted disingenuity towards Elektra. Abbado, struggling against a rock (the score) and a hard place (the audience) looks likes he's on Orest's hit list too. Quite an experience. 4/10
