DMMO's "Elektra" on "Opera in October"

Join us today at noon as our Opera in October series continues with the Des Moines Metro Opera's production of Elektra by Richard Strauss. This opera was the beginning of a long collaboration between Strauss and the notable Austrian authorĀ  Hugo von Hoffmansthal. Its powerful retelling of the Greek myth challenges performers to this day. Tune in to hear how well the DMMO surmounts those challenges!
