The Blu-Ray/DVD of the Metropolitan Opera performance, released in October 2016, has been nominated for the award for Recording (Complete Opera) of the Year. Also among the nominees are the production's conductor, Lothar Koenigs, for Conductor of the Year, and two of its performers, Johan Reuter and Martin Winkler, both for Male Singer of the Year.

    The Metropolitan Opera's performance of Lulu, directed by acclaimed South African visual artist William Kentridge, premiered in 2015 and starred Marlis Petersen in her final performances as Lulu, a role she has made "hers and almost hers alone" (Opera News). The performance seen on the Blu-Ray/DVD was recorded and broadcast live in movie theaters around the world as part of The Met: Live in HD on November 21, 2015. "A stunning and searing production," exclaimed the New York Times. You can watch a trailer from the production below.
