Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The nuptials of eros and thanatos unveil their irresistible attraction in this second opera of Alban Berg who, following "Wozzeck", describes the sometimes bright and often bestial intensity of human relations. Intoxicatingly enigmatic and deadly for those close to her, Lulu’s secret goes with her unto death. From the folly of love to the humiliation of vulgarity, she incites the excess. She unhinges reality Frank Wedekind’s work provided fertile ground for the composer to create this striking opera, considered one of the major works of the 20th century, but which remained unfinished due to his untimely death in 1935. After his production of "Médée" (on DVD at Bel Air Classiques), 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 is conducted the Orchestre symphonique de la Monnaie and canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan gives a tremendous, never-to-be-forgotten account of the title role.
