Lise Lindstrom makes her greatly anticipated house debut at Royal Danish Opera as the titular Elektra in Strauss’s brilliant one-act drama, adapted from the ancient Greek myth. A signature role for Ms. Lindstrom, she’s received critical praise for her portrayal of this demanding character, with Bachtrack hailing:
“American dramatic soprano Lindstrom was fiercely good in the demanding title role. An admirable vocal range carried her character from black rage and despair to the deceptive sweetness, even madness, expressed in her shimmering top notes – part of the emotional insight she brought to her powerful yet nuanced singing.”
Performances will take place on March 25, 29, April 5, 12, 16, 20, & 26. Under the baton of Thomas Søndergård, Ms. Lindstrom shares the stage with Violeta Urmana as Klytemnestra, Johan Reuter as Orest, Elisabeth Strid as Chrysothemis, Gert Henning-Jensen as Aegisth, and Morten Staugaard as Orests plejefader.
Dmitri Tcherniakov, one of the world’s most coveted opera directors, has recast the rapturous musical drama about a dysfunctional family as a psychological crime story set in a modern-day luxury condominium.
