Wiener Staatsoper


Direction:Willy Decker

Premiere: 3. 12. 2017

There was much rejoicing when the three-act version of Alban Berg’s a Lulu completed
by Friedrich Cerha reached the stage for its world première in 1979. It is well
known that Berg died before he could complete the orchestration of Act 3; as a
result for many years the work could only be performed as a two-act fragment. Even
the Wiener Staatsoper’s last new production of Lulu by Willy Decker followed the
performance tradition: the last two pieces of Berg’s Symphonic Pieces were performed
after the first two acts. Now Willy Decker returns to the Staatsoper to present
his celebrated production of Lulu in the three-act version with orchestration completed
by Cerha.
