Elektra - R. Strauss
With “Elektra”, the Munich composer Richard Strauss (1864-1949), after “Salome”,once again places a woman thirsting for revenge at the center of his one-act opera. Although the composer initially had doubts as to whether these two works were too close in content, librettist and poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal was able to dispel Strauss’s misgivings. The opera celebrated its premiere in 1909 at the Dresden Court Opera. Elektra cannot forgive her mother Clytemnestra for killing her father Agamemnon with her lover Aegisth. She has secretly placed her brother Orest with a nurse who is to raise him as an avenger, since Elektra herself is too weak to atone for the murder. Thus, while waiting for Orest’s return, Elektra lives with her sister at the home of her mother and her lover. Meanwhile, Clytemnestra is plagued by nightmares, which she hopes will be alleviated by Elektra, of all people. However, Elektra says in no uncertain terms that only her death can take away her dreams. When the news of Orest’s death reaches the court, Clytemnestra is relieved, while Electra is devastated. She plans to take revenge herself with the help of her sister, but she refuses. When a stranger enters the court, Electra recognizes her brother in him; the news of his death was a diversion. Orest atones for his father’s death, and Elektra celebrates ecstatically until she collapses dead.

Franz Welser-Möst
Maestro Franz Welser-Möst, born in Linz in 1960, has now been working in the U.S. for almost 20 years as chief conductor and music director of the Cleveland Orchestra. He has never lost his ties to his home country of beautiful (Upper) Austria however. So he makes stops in Austria with his orchestra on world tours, but he also has a close partnership with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. He performs worldwide, but also at the legendary New Year’s Concert at the Vienna Musikverein. In addition, he is a summer guest at the traditional Salzburg Festival, performing concert repertoire as well as exciting opera literature. In 2018, for example, the performance of Strauss` ´Salome` with a magnificent Asmik Grigorian caused quite a stir. On his 60th birthday, Welser-Möst published his book ´Als ich die Stille fand` (´When I Found Silence`), which provides more intimate insights into his own sometimes bumpy path through life and conducting, about nature and soul, and which also criticizes the classical music scene, which in some cases ´sells out`.

Ausrine Stundyte
The soprano Aušrine Stundyte (*1976) began her vocal studies in her hometown at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and later continued them at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Leipzig, a city rich in music tradition. The opera and concert singer had her first engagements at the stages in Leipzig, Cologne and Lübeck, and guest appearances took her to Lisbon and Palermo, among other places. This was followed by appearances at the opera houses in Amsterdam, Berlin, Madrid, Munich, Lyon, Vienna, Zurich and at the festivals in Aix-en-Provence, St. Gallen, Salzburg and Savonlinna.  Stundyte`s broad repertoire of roles includes opera classics by Giacomo Puccini (Tosca, Manon Lescaut) and Giuseppe Verdi (Elisabeth in ´Don Carlos`, Amelia in ´Un ballo in Maschera`, Desdemona in Othello) as well as modern opera literature, for example by Béla Bartók (Judith in ´Bluebeard’s Castle`) and Erich W. Korngold (Marietta in ´Die tote Stadt`). At Salzburg Festival 2021 and under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst, the soprano will again sing the title role of Elektra with which she successfully debuted in Salzburg in 2020.

Il Trionfo del tempo e del disinganno - G. F. Händel
The extensive oeuvre of George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) is firmly anchored in today’s stage repertoire. Yet we owe this only to the 20th century, when Handel’s works were brought back to the stage from Göttingen. A concept of repertoire as we know it today was largely foreign to artists and audiences of the Baroque period: compositions usually served an occasion - the result is an almost unimaginable abundance of compositions. This is also reflected in Handel’s oeuvre, which includes 42 operas and 25 oratorios. Handel’s first oratorio, "Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno" from 1707, was written in the course of his trip to Italy. It is about the beautiful Belezza and her dispute with Piacere (pleasure), Tempo (time) and Disinganno (knowledge). With its typically slender baroque orchestra and four solo voices alternating between recitatives, arias, duets, and quartets, the oratorio is entirely in the Italian oratorio tradition. The libretto was written by Cardinal Benedetto Pamphilj.
