Cast of Elektra: Astrid Varnay, Leonie Rysanek, Res Fischer, Hans Hotter, Helmut Melchert

05 September 2017

It's been 10 years ago since I last bought a CD. Then my aunt gave me a 2-CD set of ELEKTRA (Borkh, Della Casa, Madeira, Lorenz, Mitropoulos, Vienna 1957) in 2014. Today, I picked up my parcel at the Quezon City Central Post Office -- my favorite Richard Strauss' opera ELEKTRA. As if the 2 Elektras I already have are not enough... I still have 2 Elektras coming this September!

The photos were shot with a NIkon D5200 and a Tamron Adaptall 1 38-100mm f/3.5 (CZ-38M) at 38mm f/8 macro mode.
