Consider this a PSA. The Deutsche Oper Berlin has only managed to sell half the house for tonight’s performance of Strauss’ “Elektra” (curtain at 8pm). It’s got a killer cast, headed by Nina Stemme and Waltraud Meier as opera’s most cuddly mother-daughter duo.Manuela Uhl, Burkhard Ulrich, Tobias Kehrer, Seth Carico round out the promising cast, while GMD Donald Runnicles will draw fire from the electrifying orchestra. Great seats are still available in every price category, not to mention last-minute tickets for students, unemployed etc etc at the evening box office. General information about the performance can be found here. Lastly, here’s what I wrote in Opera News about Kirsten Harms’ production back during the premiere in 2007.
