Love, obsession and death come to the big screen
You may have noticed that there has been an awful lot of opera coming to Chattanooga over the past few months.
The reason in part is that opera is going through a resurgence in popularity as new audiences have been able to see very high-quality productions, largely due to the award-winning theatrical screenings of The Met: Live in HD.
The latest sumptuous production comes from acclaimed artist and director William Kentridge, who applies his unique theatrical vision to Berg’s notorious femme fatale, who shatters lives, including her own, with Lulu.
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.
