Elektra by Richard Strauss( )

29 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 711 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

The legendary Plácido Domingo is an achingly romantic Lohengrin, his golden-toned tenor bringing to life Wagner's swan knight of ancient legend. He stars opposite the irresistible Anna Tomowa-Sintow as Elsa, the young woman wrongly accused of killing her brother. Eva Marton gives a tour-de-force performance as the evil Ortrud, and Donald McIntyre is Telramund, her scheming husband. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus
