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.
Adjacent to the Orpheum, the appropriately named Annex is a spunky, cabaret-style venue equally suited for dance and musical performances as receptions and rehearsals. The space is easily converted from flat-floor to a tiered theatre space with 193 seats and is expertly equipped to accommodate a range of sound and light options.Explore This Venue
