Manic Monday Mozart – Anja Harteros is Elettrafyin'

I love the expression on Elettra's face as she discovers/remembers her power to call down lightning on her foes. The first expression is like "oh cool!" Anja Harteros' Elettra is pretty crazed, but it's not like she doesn't have a good reason to be angry. Things don't usually go well for this "third wheel" in Idomeno. When you watch her Act 3 aria, you know this poor woman has gone completely over the edge. 

In this performance from the Salzburg M22 Festival in 2006, AH hints at her exciting Verdi performances to come.
