The Royal Opera House

Berg: Lulu DVD (The Royal Opera)

Alban Berg's masterful opera tells the gripping story of the rise and fall of Lulu, culminating in her death at the hands of Jack the Ripper. Christof Loy's austere, minimalist production allows the complexities of the drama to unfold through the sumptuous, taut beauty of the score. Agneta Eichenholz and Michael Volle lead an all-star cast under Antonio Pappano. Recorded in High Definition with true surround sound.
