Elektra by Richard Strauss( )

197 editions published between 1961 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 5,964 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

Deborah Voigt brings sumptuous vocalism and dramatic presence to the title role of Strauss and Hofmannsthal's re-imagination of the Helen myth.

After the war, she is reunited with her husband, Menelas, sung by Torsten Kerl. Diana Damrau is Aithra, the sorceress who helps Helen regain Menelas's love, and Wolfgang Brendel sings Altair, a desert chieftain who falls in love with Helen. Fabio Luisi conducts the ravishing score

192 editions published between 1911 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nach dem Vorbild spätmittelalterlicher Mysterienspiele und dramatischer Bearbeitungen aus der frühen Neuzeit (Elckerlijc/Everyman, Homulus, Hecastus) treten im Jedermann Gott, der Tod, der Teufel und andere abstrakte Wesen als Personifikationen auf. Der wohlhabende Jedermann sieht sich mit dem unerwarteten Tod konfrontiert, der ihn vor seinen Schöpfer führen will. Weder sein treuer Knecht, noch seine Freunde, noch sein Geld wollen ihn ins Grab begleiten; erst der Auftritt seiner Werke und des Glaubens bringen ihn dazu, sich zur Christenheit zu bekennen und als reuiger Bekehrter ins Grab zu steigen. - Wikipedia
