Lulu EUR" the "archetypal woman, created to wreak havoc, to lure, to seduce, to poison and to murder without anyone realizing" EUR" represents the object and the projection of men's desires and dreams. By destroying her lovers, Lulu is driven from cold-hearted love to cold-blooded murder and ultimately to her own destruction. For this Berlin Version Alban Berg's fragment has been completed by David Robert Coleman. Mojca Erdmann as Lulu proves ideally suited, mastering the insane leaps and coloraturas of the role with incredible ease. She is supported by Deborah Polaski as Countess Geschwitz, the "internally smouldering" Michael Volle as Dr. Schon and Georg Nigl as the "meticulously articulating athlete". (Der Tagesspiegel)
