Broadly considered one of the seminal operas of the twentieth century, Lulu explores sexual desire through a gritty, emotional and intensely expressive score.

Broadly considered one of the seminal operas of the twentieth century, Lulu explores sexual desire through a gritty, emotional and intensely expressive score.

In an unforgettable staging from the celebrated artist and director William Kentridge, Lulu is a figure of magnificent beauty and inexorable magnetism, largely thought of as an amoral seductress.

But perhaps Lulu is the real victim of her looks, even before her encounter with someone more deadly than she is.

With conductor Mark Wigglesworth returning to ENO to conduct this major event, Berg’s femme fatale is presented here in an unforgettable form.
