Description "From 1930s Vienna, this opera is appropriately complex... Lulu could be seen as sexually incarnate... She sleeps around a lot and her lovers (including a countess) all come to ignominious ends, as does Lulu herself when, having sunk to street prostitution, her last client is Jack the Ripper."
