With a globally anticipated production of Alban Berg’s Lulu, directed by the South African star artist William Kentridge, the Metropolitan Opera “again sets new artistic standards” (Kurier). Kentridge creates an independent work of art that nevertheless always serves the opera. The result is a masterful production, “serious art, on many levels” (The Washington Post). Great singing-actress Marlis Petersen, who has sung the title role to great acclaim around the world and retired the part after these Met performances, stars as the sexually irresistible woman who destroys the lives of everyone around her.
