 Great Opera, Great Recording December 18, 2012 By Weston Williams (Chicago, IL) See All My Reviews "This is an incredibly violent opera with incredibly violent music to match it, which the performers do with skill. Quite simply, the opera's fantastic, and this is a fantastic recording of it. The libretto that comes with the set is not the best translation and a little harder to follow than most; that said, there are better librettos online and following the one given is not impossible (just a bit difficult). This should not deter you from purchasing this recording Lulu; it is an experience of German expressionism that should not be missed." Report Abuse
