enjoy the tribal bombastic harmonic dissonance in this finale of a 20th century masterpiece. this is an adaptation of the classic by Euripides's Elektra(sung by birgit nilsson), but in this version there are many modern overt and blunt suggestions of today's dysfunctional families...incest, homosexuality, matricide, daddy's little girl and of
