Celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Metropolitan Operaâ??s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning serie The Met: Live in HD. The broadcast of Strauss's Elektra will be presented live on Saturday, April 30 at 12:55 p.m. ET / 9:55 a.m. PT, followed by an encore presentation in cinemas on Wednesday, May 4 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones. The genius director Patrice ChÃ©reau (From the House of the Dead) didnâ??t live to see his great Elektra production, previously presented in Aix and Milan, make it to the stage of the Met. But his overpowering vision lives on with soprano Nina Stemme â?? unmatched today in the heroic female roles of Strauss and Wagner â?? who portrays Elektraâ??s primal quest for vengeance. Legendary mezzo-soprano Waltraud Meier is chilling as Elektraâ??s fearsome mother, KlytÃ¤mnestra. Soprano Adrianne Pieczonka and bass Eric Owens are Elektraâ??s troubled siblings. ChÃ©reauâ??s musical collaborator, Esa-Pekka Salonen, conducts.
