Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
32 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
