Shout from the band: The premiere of the State Opera Festival director Andrea Breth has the idea of ??using "Lulu" set in a junkyard as an installation with a loud undead scene in vorbeigestikulieren stupid stupid choreography together.
Well did you know it just made cozy with Alban Berg's "Lulu", karen millen outlet
the last of all last romantic operas, which was as eloquent fragment, when the composer died in 1935 on the instrumentation of the third act. It was with her two-act torso already satisfied, had become accustomed to Friedrich Cerha leather complete the third act (premiered in 1979 in Paris, a world event) and loved the Lulu Suite, which the conductor Erich Kleiber still end 1934 with a howl of protest of the Nazis Berlin from the baptism lifted. Apart from the fact that the two-act version is always a bit short and the three-act - especially in Paris image - always a bit boring, no action seemed to exist.
The first saw this conductor Eberhard Kloke different. He snatched the third act of 2010 for Stefan Herheims Copenhagen staging and redeemed him from his symphonic double cream, and dizzy as he orchestrated the singers declaim often just left. David Robert Coleman on him now follows at the Berlin State Opera, and his thrust would be the same. However whets Coleman decided the knife: The Paris-image disappears altogether, the prologue of the tamer ("Come on ...") for reasons of proportion and symmetry also, karen millen dresses
so that you end up smaller domestic cuts, including, at a practical running time of two and a half hours lands.
Coleman is firmly committed to the State Opera, the order for a new treatment of "Lulu" he received in the fall. Even for a mountain-specialists like him ample time no budget (which was the elimination of the Paris-image part of the contract, which increases not just the artistic freedom). And so this is a clean version of Berlin Kapellmeister ROYAL circuit training beyond barely. Strangely, it is just the exotic instruments in the remaining London-image of the third act (banjo, guitar, marimba, bells, xylophone), karen millen
which reinforces this impression. That sounds more like a break in style than to gutter, more dutifully than urban-wicked and trivializes not only the events but also their own feelings. If Jack the Ripper aka Dr. Sch?n poor Lulu finally pours gasoline and pulls out a lighter, you have to be downright hochrappeln to witness this end. Because "Lulu" is not just romantic opera yet? Because of Expressionism, it was never any different?
The idiomatic, strict form of love but of this score, Daniel Barenboim does not matter. In the strings of his Staatskapelle you probably would like to sink, drown, so finely tuned and sweet at the same time, they model the legendary interludes: A Grave, as if it were the young Gustav Mahler, as variations from the pen of the late Richard Strauss. Only mountain itself is not quite to the fore because Barenboim much rather think in sound than in numbers, and over every rhetorical Sculpted hinwegdirigiert principle. Even so heart touching Rondo as Alwa 'soul in the afterlife rubs the sleep from his eyes "fizzles, and otherwise it is issued to the melodrama of the old Schigolch in the second act (" Gee, little Lulu "). The rest is like something out loud.
The music may also Unkonturierte of singers such as Thomas Piffka (Alwa), Jürgen Linn (Schigolch) or Stephan Rügamer (painter / Black) are having in front of their games simply have too much respect. What pleasure can make twelve-tone music, show the great, inside burning Michael Volle as Dr. Sch?n, Georg Nigl articulating a pinpoint accurate athlete and Deborah Polaski Countess Countess, which is sufficient in fact, if she sits with a white full head bandage on the ramp - ready Lulu, who is also forfeited her to go to jail.
Lulu is Mojca Erdmann: a doll, not a termagant; an innocent angel, not a murderous monster forming. A woman with no history and sex, the perfect foil for the desires of others, young and very cold and empty. Unfortunately, this is also vocally, as more than a few kids trumpet sounds Erdmann not know her kreidefarbenem soprano out of it. The emphasis ("Freedom!"), She remains anemic, at the height rapidly pressed, in the end ("No, no!") Not involved, and the death-cry comes from the band anyway. Probably wanted Andrea Breth, the director, not everything is different. Artists like her - she has the bravura "Wozzeck" was shown in 2011 - live from the "magic relationship" between the people and characters. How Breth has now fallen to the idea of ??using "Lulu" set in the ash-gray ambience of a car cemetery (stage Erich Wonder) as a kind of installation in a loud undead scene vorbeigestikulieren stupid in dumb choreography together - that remains the great mystery and scandal this year's festive season premiere. Cheers and boos.
