Elektra by Richard Strauss
Based on the Greek myth of the cursed family of legend, Elektra tells the story of a quest for vengeance that consumes her life and ends with tragedy and death.

Hailed as "the first Freudian opera", Elektra is as dramatic as it is controversial. A story of violence, murder, and endless vengeance tearing apart a family, Strauss opera is one of his darkest and bloodiest tales.
