Notes and Editorial Reviews
• The riveting singing actress Julia Migenes stars in the title role of this Live from the Met telecast, in a production by the great John Dexter that the Times called “the year’s major operatic event.” The cast also features Franz Mazura, Evelyn Lear and Kenneth Riegel.
• Long a champion of this groundbreaking work, Music Director James Levine, the driving force behind Lulu’s highly anticipated Met premiere, conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
• Taken from the December 20, 1980 live performance.
