THE WORKS OF TINTO BRASS
After completing Paprika Brass
cast Debora Caprioglio as Lulù in Frank
Wedekind’s Lulu: A Monster Tragedy.
Wedekind was unable to publish or perform this play in
his lifetime, and so instead toned it down and turned
it into two other plays: Erdgeist (Earth
Spirit, 1895) and Die Büchse der
Pandora (Pandora’s Box, 1904).
Brass’s production ran for seven months,
apparently because Caprioglio played the rôle in the
nude. I have no other details at all on the whens,
wheres, or hows of this production. If you can fill me
in, fill me in. Thanks!
Ah. A fan filled me in. Also in the cast: Paolo Lanza, Renzo Rinaldi, Claritta Zaniti Gatti, Rosa Pianeta.
