‘Elektra’ in concert with the Bayerische Staatsorchester

25 August 2015 — René Pape sings Orest in a concert presentation of Strauss’ Elektra on September 13 at the George Enescu Festival in Bucharest. Orest is a signature role for Mr. Pape, whose previous performances have been heralded by audiences and critics alike: “The great bass René Pape was a vocal and dramatic giant in the role of Orest, Elektra's exiled brother . . . “ (The New York Times)

Conductor Sebastian Weigle leads the Bayerisches Staatsorchester and Radio Academic Choir for this concert, which includes Elena Panktratova in the title role, Agnes Baltsa as Klytemnestra, Anne Schwanewilms as Chrysothemis, and Ulrich Reß as Aegisth.
