Members of the Anglo-Swedish Society were invited to attend a stage rehearsal of Strauss’s Elektra at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. Stockholm-born soprano Nina Stemme sang the title role. Strauss’s thrilling and audacious adaptation of the Greek tragedy Elektra here receives a new staging from the award-winning director Christof Loy, and is conducted by the ROH Music Director, Sir Antonio Pappano. The rehearsal was followed by a light lunch.
