synopsis: Anyone who sees her is already lost and anyone who wants to kiss her will, sooner or later, get bitten. In droves, men are dashed to pieces on the apparently so cuddly Lulu as if she were the rock of the Loreley. Corpses pave her way, she is a femme fragile and a femme fatale all at the same time, the “prototype of a woman”, the most lethal female figure in the history of opera. But it is only the glance of men that makes her into the personae in which we meet her: She creates the image of a woman he craves and on this constraining perspective the object of his lusts must again be destroyed. Alban Berg has described Lulu’s path in subtle symmetry, with a score that bears within it the entire wealth of the history of music’s form and colour.



a great production with excellent stage setting and amazing performance by Marlis Petersen. A performance charged with intensity and great voices.

Kirill Petrenko was born in Omsk in 1972 and studied piano there at the Music Academy. At the age of eleven, he made his first public appearance as a pianist with the city’s symphony orchestra……Kirill Petrenko took up his appointment as General Music Director of the Bayerische Staatsoper on 1 September 2013, and during the 2013/14 season he conducted the premieres of Die Frau ohne Schatten, La clemenza di Tito and Die Soldaten. His second season will include the new productions of Lucia di Lammermoor and Lulu and, among others, the revival of Der Ring des Nibelungen. In 2015/16, Petrenko will be the musical director for the first performance of Miroslav Srnka’s South Pole and will conduct the premiere of Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. In addition, the General Music Director will be directing the Bayerisches Staatsorchester in revivals of Ariadne auf Naxos, Die Walküre, Götterdämmerung, Die Fledermaus, Tosca and Der Rosenkavalier plus three Academy Concerts.

Munich; Bayerische Staatsoper: “Das Rheingold”, Richard Wagner

A spectacular opera performance last night at the Opera House in Munich, “Das Reingold”. Conceived by Wagner as a prologue to his monumental Ring cycle, ” Das Rheingold”  sets forth the dramatic issues that play out in the three subsequent operas. Gold from the depths of the Rhine River is stolen by the dwarf Alberich, who uses it to forge a ring that will give him unlimited power. The theft sets in motion a course of events that will eventually alter the order of the universe.
