Notes and Editorial Reviews

Based on a pair of once-banned plays by the fin de siècle satirist Frank Wedekind, Alban Berg's operatic swan song charts the rise and fall of a femme fatale, a serial seductress, from life as a society hostess to prostitution and eventual death at the hands of Jack the Ripper. With it's intensely beautiful score, Lulu is acknowledged as a twentieth century masterpiece. Performed at the Glyndebourne Festival Opera, and starring Christine Schäfer, Kathryn Harries, Patricia Bardon, Jonathan Viera. Andrew Davis conducts the London Philharmonic. Sung in German, with subtitles available in English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. Full Screen 4:3, Dolby Digital Stereo.
