She is Seductress. She is Confidante. She is Chaos.
Greek heroine Klytemnestra single-handedly annihilated the most powerful war hero of her time and destabilized a society. This chamber opera, by Dominick DiOrio (named Best Composer 2011 by the Houston Press), highlights the heroine's complex physiological world and her relationship with her daughter, Iphigenia.
