    ^^

    My condolences for those 4 and half hours I suppose that you'll never get back.

    It wasn't in the plan of Philips to do a release of the complete Bayreuth canon. The could have planned to record one of the 60s productions with Schippers or Böhm.

    No need, I happily purchased it because I liked what I heard. I also knew I would get flak here because the opinion here that i found in searches was not good. But the recording has good reviews by some:

    In a Verdian mood lately. I've just bought this one to add to Toscanini's renditions of Otello and Aida, which I have enjoyed enormously.

    Saw it on ebay, like new, for $15 so picked it up.
    I liked the way the acts are set up.
    Acts 2 and 3 whole on their own disc.
    Act 1 split between discs 1 and disc 2, in a decent spot.
    Plus excellent sound and notes.

    Strauss: Elektra

    Karl Böhm, Munich 1977
    Ursula Schröder-Feinen - Elektra
    Astrid Varnay - Klytämnestra
    Leonie Rysanek - Chrysothemis
    Hans Hopf - Ägisth
    Theo Adam - Orest



    I took advantage of Opera Depot's recent sale. Been wanting to get this for a while. Some really good interpreters of the main roles in decent sound quality.
