Description Director Matthew Lutton's new production brings startling visual intensity to the music, with Danish soprano Eva Johansson in the title role. Enter Elektra's vivid dreams and desires - she has seen her father murdered, the city around her is cursed and she longs for justice. As Strauss's music rises in beauty and falls in horror, Elektra searches for light in the darkness.
