Kiri Te Kanawa gives an elegant and touching performance in one of her greatest roles, the wealthy and cultured young Countess Madeleine, who must choose between her two artist suitors: the composer Flamand (David Kuebler) and the poet Olivier (Simon Keenlyside).

Lulu : [Oper in drei Akten nach den Tragödien Erdgeist und Büchse der Pandora von Frank Wedekind] by Alban Berg( )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance
