Abstract

This paper examines two examples of Electra's reception in the artistic medium of opera. The methodology used in this analysis involves examining the historical, socio-political and cultural context of each reception. That is then followed by a detailed comparative analysis between the original source and the adaptation. This method focuses on how the context of each reception influenced the changes made to the original.
