This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

Elektra by Richard Strauss( Recording )

14 editions published between 1952 and 2004 in German and Undetermined and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legendary Astrid Varnay gives a spectacular performance in the title role of Strauss's one-act masterpiece. Obsessed with avenging the murder of her father, Elektra is blind to the longings of her sister, Chrysothemis (Walburga Wegner), for a peaceful life. She taunts her mother, Klytämnestra (Elisabeth Höngen), with the gruesome fantasy of a bloody death at Elektra's hands. But Varnay's nuanced portrayal of Elektra's tortured soul is at its most gripping in the tender moments of reunion with her brother Orest (Paul Schöffler). The great Fritz Reiner conducts a rich, dramatic performance
