Editorial Reviews

The legendary German Mozart & Strauss singer, Anneliese Rothenberger, totally clashed with her image of 'charm and grace&' in the scandalous role of Berg's Lulu. The 1968 Hamburg production of Berg's unfinished version was a sensational success for Rothenberger with critics and audience alike. The international revivals at the Montreal World's Fair and the Metropolitan Opera of the opera garnered critical-acclaim.

Berg: Lulu is part of the Electrola Collection, a series that celebrates the historic record label, Electorla. Electrola was part of the EMI Classics unit in Germany best known for their rich catalogs, masterful artists and the iconic gramophone trademark.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rothenberger's "Sweet" Lulu May 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
Despite an excessive amount of stage noise, this is one of the more convincing performances of LULU on disc. The Hamburg Staatsoper's production was toured internationally, and the group of soloists were really clicking with each other by the time it was recorded. Rothenberger, with her lovely voice and her myriad Christmas and operetta recordings (not to denigrate her serious work), would not seem a sensible choice for the lead role, but she actually is just about ideal for this amoral character. Her 95 % accurate reading of the notes is unusually apt. A Lulu with a beautiful voice adds to the character's femme fatale appeal.
None of the other singers are as attractive vocally as the diva, but they are all thoroughly committed to their roles.
This is the standard version of the opera, with the last two movements of the LULU SYMPHONY substituting for the incomplete third act with effective voice-over dialogue..
Conductor Leopold Ludwig's post-romantic approach to the Berg score is a fine compliment to Rothenberger's interpretation.
The sound recording is excellent, unfortunately picking up all of the stage noises noted above.
There are good liner notes in German and English, but no texts.
