DMMO's "Elektra" on "Arias in April"
Join us tonight at 7 or tomorrow at 2 pm as our "Arias in April" series continues with the Des Moines Metro Opera in Richard Strauss's Elektra. The beginning of a long collaboration between Strauss and the noted author Hugo von Hoffmansthal, the opera powerfully retells the Greek myth. For performers, Elektra still presents major challenges - which the DMMO surmounts with style. Tune in to hear them! Jacqueline Halbloom produced and hosts IPR's broadcast.
