  Dramatic structure in Strauss’s Elektra
To emphasize the antagonism between the two sisters, Strauss has given Chrysothemis music that is intensely lyrical and emotionally fraught—the complete opposite of Elektra’s violent and broken style in the introduction.
Shortly afterward, Chrysothemis enters to announce the arrival of two strangers who have come to the palace with the news that Orestes has met with a fatal accident.
Chrysothemis reveals her great joy and exhorts her sister to join in the festivities inside the palace.

Chrysothemis’ and her sisters’ relationship with their mother has no bearing on Clytemnestra’s guilt here.
(Chrysothemis: Well, the slave told me that Clytemnestra had this dream where father was restored to life and was in front of her.
Chrysothemis: Apparently, mother was petrified and terrified by that dream, and she then ordered me to give these offerings to father’s grave.

CHRYSOTHEMIS For my part, friends, I am not wholly unused to her discourse; nor should I have touched upon this theme, had I not heard that she was threatened with a dread doom, which shall restrain her from her long-drawn laments.
CHRYSOTHEMIS 'Tis said that she beheld our sire, restored to the sunlight, at her side once more; then he took the sceptre,- Once his own, but now borne by Aegisthus,- and planted it at the hearth; and thence a fruitful bough sprang upward, wherewith the whole land of Mycenae was overshadowed.
CHRYSOTHEMIS Yea, and before she spake, my friends, were she blest with a sound mind, she would have remembered caution, as she doth not remember it.

 SparkNotes: Electra: Plot Overview
The chorus, which is comprised of the virgins of the palace, attempt to console Electra, but Electra, bemoaning the oppression she suffers at her mother's hands, her deep sorrow at her father's death, and her longing for Orestes' return, proves inconsolable.
Chrysothemis returns from Agamemnon's grave, full of joy and sure that Orestes has returned, because at their father's grave she found a fresh offering of flowers and a lock of hair.
Chrysothemis rejects the idea as too risky, and leaves Electra to her grieving.

She was a demure person, it is difficult to see why the name applies to this plant because, although it's demure, it's not very forgiving and it doesn't like strong sunshine.
Chrysothemis have bronze foliage but the crowning glory of this plant is its flowers; beautiful little flowers which last for a very long time.
Chrysothemis is fairly unusual and may be difficult to find at nurseries.

 DIDASKALIA: Ancient Theater Today
As the notes put it, 'Clytemnestra clearly feels that she is part of history, Chrysothemis that she is outside history, and Electra that she is history.
The set, a pile of rocks and a pool of sand bordered by pebbles, serves in the prologue and epilogue as a beach, and in the Sophoclean middle section as a desolate garden gutted and pitted by Electra, who gives her father continual burials while she awaits the return of Orestes.
Dreamlike and uncanny, such moments changed the audience's perspective by, for example, allowing them to look down on the awakening Chrysothemis (though she was positioned vertically on the wall).

 Electra
Chrysothemis, the younger, more submissive, and favorite daughter of Clytemnestra, comes with a funeral-offering, which she is ordered to carry to her father's grave.
Then she relates the dream of Clytemnestra, that Agamemnon had come to life again, and planted his sceptre in the floor of his house, whence there sprung up a tree overshadowing the whole land: terrified at which she had commissioned her to be the bearer of an offering to the dead.
Chrysothemis, full of joy, returns from the tomb with the assurance that Orestes is near at hand, for she has found there a lock of his hair, his drink-offering, and wreaths of flowers.

 STRAUSS: Elektra on DVD
On occasion her pitch is suspect, her power not at its usual intense level—after all, she had been singing the big Wagner and Strauss roles for a quarter-century.
Dramatically she is superb, brilliantly conveying Elektra's confused sexuality related both to her brother, Orest, and her sister, Chrysothemis.
Mignon Dunn, a mainstay of the Met roster for lower dramatic soprano roles, is convincing as Klytämnestra, Donald McIntyre a rather insecure Orest.
