- Lulu [opera]
Opera by late Austrian composer Alban Berg. The libretto was adapted by Berg from Frank Wedekind's plays Erdgeist (Earth Spirit) and Die Büchse der Pandora (Pandora's Box).
"Rising in society and then slinking through its seamy underbelly, is Lulu a liberated woman or the ultimate victim? Challenging, unsettling and morally ambiguous, with a shocking yet inevitable denouement, this is one of the 20th century's greatest works of art."
