Susan Graham received critical acclaim for her “poignant” (Financial Times) performance in the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Lulu, making her role debut as Countess Geschwitz. “She distinguished herself with her burnished warm sound from the very first notes,” praised the Washington Post, and “sang so radiantly [she] made Berg’s spiky music sound downright romantic” (New York Observer). As the cunning admirer of the eponymous femme fatale — played by Marlis Petersen — Susan “was luxurious casting, singing her final scene with rare eloquence and great depth of feeling,” noted Operavore, and “[balanced] fragile dignity and poignant neediness in her performance (New York Times).

Repeat performances of Berg’s opera under the direction of William Kentridge take place on November 14, 17, 21, 24, and 28 as well as December 3. Watch a trailer here of the production, which is conducted by Lothar Koenigs and Derrick Inouye and boasts a cast that also includes Daniel Brenna, Paul Groves, Johan Reuter, and Franz Grundheber. On November 21, Lulu will be transmitted to more than 2,000 screens in 70 countries across the globe as part of the Met Opera’s Live in HD series.
