On his return from Troy, King Agamemnon is assassinated by his wife Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus. His daughter Electra is then consumed with the need to avenge his death. With this piece, Richard Strauss probes the psychology of a woman on the verge of madness. This first opera, in which the composer uses a libretto by the playwright Hugo von Hofmannsthal, marks the beginning of a collaboration that will last until Hofmannsthal's death.
