Alan Berg's sprawling final masterpiece, Lulu is the extraordinary tale of one woman and her quest to live life on her own terms, even if the trail of destruction left behind her is fatal to the men who are drawn to this serpentine seductress. William Kentridge's acclaimed production finally returns to the Met after its dazzling premiere in 2015. Brenda Rae stars opposite Matthias Klink and Johan Reuter. Conducted by Sebastian Weigle
Darkly comic, powerful and provocative, Lulu's story spans Europe as she ensnares hopeful suitors with her beauty. But none of them mean anything to the former guttersnipe as Dr Schon, the man who rescued her from the streets at a young age. When she finds she cannot have what she wants, her life becomes a web of intriguie, extortion, prostition, tradgey and an eventual end at the hands of one of history's most infmaous killers...
Opening night: 5 March 2021
Sung in German with titles in English, German and Spanish.
