About

Frank Wedekind’s work provided fertile ground for Berg's second opera 'Lulu', considered one of the major works of the 20th century, but which remained unfinished due to his untimely death in 1935. Intoxicatingly enigmatic and deadly for those close to her: from the folly of love to the humiliation of vulgarity, she incites excess.

After his production of 'Médée', Krzysztof Warlikowski once again delves the innermost depths of the human psyche and chooses to tackle Lulu as a deeply moving requiem ‘to the memory of an angel’.

Paul Daniel conducts the Orchestre Symphonique de la Monnaie and Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan gives a tremendous, never-to-be-forgotten account of the title role.
