Norrlands Operan’s Symphony Orchestra
NorrlandsOperan and the dramatic art collective La Fura Dels Baus have created a unique monumental outdoor performance of Richard Strauss’ one act opera Elektra. Cranes, mechanical giants with singers standing inside their chests, skips filled with Blood – Elektra is NorrlandsOperan’s biggest and most complex production ever, including many ‘special-effects’: “Suddenly, the front of the large containers opened up. Bloody water came gushing out in copious amounts. The water level on the graveyard rose and turned red” (Kulturkorren).

“It was macabre, shocking and powerful in its great simplicity.” - Kulturkorren
