Description: Requiem is a modern retelling of the Electra story. However, instead of ancient Greece, REQUIEM takes place in modern-day America, in the world of New York City's wealthy Upper East Side. The story tells of one girl named Electra, but themes and conflicts are universal. The opera opens in a hospital waiting room in the early 1970s. Electra's father has suffered a heart attack. Thus, the saga begins. It tells of a dysfunctional family and its distorted relationships and deals with the question of evil in the family, the investigation of the possibility of the transformation of evil and disease, as well as the possibility of the transformation of death into life.
