Elektra , Op. 58, is a one-act opera by Richard Strauss , to a German-language libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal , [1] which he adapted from his 1903 drama Elektra . The opera was the first of many collaborations between Strauss and Hofmannsthal. It was first performed at the Dresden State Opera on 25 January 1909. It was dedicated to his friends Natalie and Willy Levin. [2]

Strauss, whose name was synonymous with "artistic scandal" on both sides of the Atlantic, was no stranger to controversy, but even so, many of the opera's original commentators were unusually vitriolic in their condemnation.
