Notes & Reviews:

"The highlight of the Festival was Harry Kupfer's new production of Elektra, first seen at the Vienna State Opera some weeks before Salzburg. Eva Marton was an Elektra of great strength, and Brigitte Fassbaender a compelling Clytemnestra, less ancient than she is often portrayed as being. But it was the controlled frenzy of the Vienna Philharmonic under Abbado's masterly and perceptive direction which made this Elektra such a memorable experience." -The Stage
