Kentridge, William: The Lulu Plays
This limited edition contains 67 printed drawings by William Kentridge bound into the book. The text is the original telling of the Lulu story by playwright Frank Wedekind, which inspired the silent cinema classic Pandora’s Box and the Alban Berg opera Lulu. The images were derived from brush and ink drawings for projections for Kentridge’s 2015 production of Alban Berg’s opera Lulu, which was based on the two Wedekind plays from the turn of the century, Earth Spirit and Pandora’s Box. Following its acclaimed run at the Metropolitan Opera, Kentridge’s production opened in London on November 9, 2016 at the English National Opera, and in Rome on May 17, 2017.
