Rave reviews for Lulu at the Met

William Kentridge’s production of Lulu at the Metropolitan Opera is receiving rave reviews: find a selection below:

What’s most impressive of all, though, is that Lulu has found a worthy partner in the Met’s provocative and visually stunning new staging. If there’s such a thing as a gold standard for opera, this is it. (James Jorden, Observer, 6 November 2015)

Lulu will never be a crowd-pleaser, but what happened on the Met stage on Thursday was an even rarer commodity in many opera houses: serious art, on many levels. (Anne Midgette, The Washington Post, 6 November 2015)

The Met’s terrific cast is headed by the charismatic German soprano Marlis Petersen as Lulu. Having been a sought-after Lulu for nearly two decades, Ms. Petersen will retire the role from her repertory at the end of this run, which makes it all the more imperative to see her now. (Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times, 6 November 2015)

So, we’re agreed: this is a monster show, and everyone needs to know. (Seth Colter Walls and Jason Farago, The Guardian, 6 November 2015)
