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.

Vienna's richest man decides to enjoy a classical opera (Ariadne auf Naxos) together with a musical comedy to entertain his guests, much to the horror of the opera singers and composer. Theseus, who has been saved from the labyrinth by Ariadne, abandons her on the desolate island of Naxos. Unhinged by grief, she calls on Death to release her from her suffering. The comedians in the parallel opera buffa try to cheer her up, saying that there are plenty more fish in the sea. Enter Bacchus, and Ariadne's longing for death is transformed into readiness to yield to love.

"Elisabeth Schwarzkopf was the most celebrated Marschallin since Lotte Lehmann; Otto Edelmann recalled the great days of Emanuel List and Richard Mayr; Sena Jurinac, perhaps a shade too plump for a dramatically convincing Octavian, nevertheless sang, moved and acted well; and Annaliese Rothenberger was absolutely divine as Sophie. The filmed production is lavish and colorful. This was the definitive performance of its time." (The New York Times).
