    The Stanford Summer Theater Electra Festival offers a free Monday night film series featuring Cacoyannis’ Iphigenia and Electra (with Irene Pappas, music by Mikis Theodorakis), Friedrich’s explosive film of the Strauss/Hofmannstahl opera Elektra (with Leonie Rysanek,Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, and the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Karl Böhm), Visconti’s Vaghe Stelle dell’ Orsa (’Dim Stars of the Big Bear,” released in the US as Sandra, with Claudia Cardinale), and von Trotta’s masterful reworking of the Antigone myth, Die Bleierne Zeit (“The Leaden Time,” released in the US as Marianne and Julianne). A discussion follows each film, led by Stanford faculty and SST artists.
