Soprano Marlis Petersen has excited audiences around the world with her portrayal of the tour-de-force title role, a wild journey of love, obsession, and death. Susan Graham joins a winning cast, including Daniel Brenna and Johan Reuter. Co-produced by 'De Nationale Opera'.

“Powerful… Marlis Petersen was dazzling.” The Washington Post

“Kentridge’s endlessly fertile imagination proved [Lulu’s] equal… Petersen, the world’s reigning Lulu, inhabited the role with astonishing command.” The Wall Street Journal
