Elektra 1979Welsh National Opera

Read more about the opera Elektra

This week of performances showed Welsh National at a time when it routinely employed the cream of continental directors, unfamiliar to other British companies. To the three performances of their new Magic Flute by a young Swedish team, they added these two performances of Elektra, a work not heard in Glasgow since before the First World War. The East German Harry Kupfer would shortly direct a Ring Cycle at Bayreuth with a number of leading British performers, including Anne Evans as Brünnhilde and John Tomlinson as Wotan. Pauline Tinsley was already a familiar figure to Scottish audiences, and several of these young singers, including Willard White and Anne Mason, would soon become so.
