Now available: “an explicit, yet chilly” Lulu

Reading time: 1 min. Alban Berg

Walk up, walk up! and spend a pleasant hour,
Fair ladies, noble gentlemen, with me;
Inside my tent you'll thrill – and chill – to see
The beasts I have in my menagerie
Tamed by superior force of human power.

Krzysztof Warlikowski’s production of Lulu at La Monnaie in Brussels was recently released on DVD by Bel Air Classiques. Find out more here.

Barbara Hannigan gives everything she’s got and then some to the title role. Charles Workman is the finely lyrical Alwa; Dietrich Henschel, never bettered, the troubled Schoen. It’s nicely conducted by Paul Daniel, too.
