“Alone! Alas, all alone!” From the beginning Electra stands against the rest of the world, with nothing but her remembrance of Agamemnon. She has kept the axe with which her father was killed, and every day she recalls the scene of the murder. In this way she tears the wound open anew each time, waiting for her brother Orestes to come and to help her to murder their mother Clytæmnestra and her lover Ægisthus.

Hugo von Hofmannsthal wanted to restore the “horror of myth” with his “Elektra” poem, “to let shadows rise again out of the blood”. He saw his tragic figures in the function of “divers” which he let “sink into the depths of life” to open up “the circles of Hell”. Richard Strauss (1864-1949) found in him the fitting partner for a form of music-theatre in which he could let loose a torrent of feeling, agitation, love and hatred.
