Elektra by Richard Strauss( file )
214 editions published between 1961 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 5,198 libraries worldwide
In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead

246 editions published between 1911 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,594 libraries worldwide
One of the composer's most highly regarded operas, with a libretto by Hugo von Hoffmansthal that artfully intermingles backstage comedy, the lofty emotions of Greek mythology and the merry pranks of a troupe of commedia dell'arte players. Strauss endowed these antic proceedings with a luminous score that combines music of great satiric wit with breathtaking flights of lyricism
Elektra : op. 58 by Richard Strauss( score )
219 editions published between 1908 and 2000 in 7 languages and held by 1,464 libraries worldwide
One of the most often performed of Strauss' musical works, this landmark of modern opera scandalized early 20th-century audiences with its startling dissonance and unconventional harmonics. Today, it is admired for virtuosic invention of musical ideas and the use of instrumental sonorities to characterize both persons and actions
Die Ägyptische Helena by Richard Strauss( file )
41 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,312 libraries worldwide
Deborah Voigt brings sumptuous vocalism and dramatic presence to the title role of Strauss and Hofmannsthal's re-imagination of the Helen myth. Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, the story is based on the premise that the Helen who came to Troy was a phantom, while the real, faithful one was spirited away. After the war, she is reunited with her husband, Menelas, sung by Torsten Kerl. Diana Damrau is Aithra, the sorceress who helps Helen regain Menelas's love, and Wolfgang Brendel sings Altair, a desert chieftain who falls in love with Helen. Fabio Luisi conducts the ravishing score
