Kobbe is the world's leading reference work on opera, and (in the words of Bernard Levin) 'no single-volume operatic guide can possibly compare with it'. But The New Kobbe's opera book, edited by the Earl of Harewood and Anthony Peattie, is a large and relatively expensive book. This condensed edition has all the essential information at your fingertips on over 200 operas all those currently in the repertoire of the world's leading opera companies, as well as many that are more rarely performed. For most operas there is a full summary of the plot and libretto, a brief commentary on the music, and details of its performance history. The work of editing and condensing has been carried out by the Earl of Harewood, assisted by Michael Shmith

Elektra by Richard Strauss( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead
