According to one reviewer, Dr. Parkins's recording of Music from Elektra "leaves nothing behind in the opera house pit, and...liberally grabs at the blood and guts of the tragedy" (Fanfare).$5 Event Parking will be available in the Bryan Center Parking Garage, located at 125 Science Drive, Durham, NC 27708.
