Richard Strauss's operatic adaptation of the Greek tragedy Oresteia is preserved in this video recording of a February 16, 1980 performance as staged by New York's Metropolitan Opera Company. Birgit Nilsson stars as Elektra, who after the death of her father sets out to kill the wife and mistress whom she believes caused his death. Elektra also features Leonie Rysanek, Robert Nagy, and Mignon Dunn; James Levine conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
