Lulu is beautiful. Damaged. Seductive. And lethal. She's whoever you want her to be.

Everyone falls for her, and it would be very easy to see her as a dangerous and amoral seductress. But is it Lulu herself who's the real victim?

And what happens when she meets someone even more deadly than she is?

Berg's opera is a gritty exploration of sexual desire.
