Grand Théâtre de Genève's new Olivier Py production of Alban Berg's Lulu was already making news in the days before its premiere on Friday. It was rated by the theater as too daring for underage crowds, and carried a strict rating to bar those under 16 years old ("Nous déconseillons le spectacle aux personnes de moins de 16 ans."). The warning referenced an out-of-focus p0rno projection during the final scene of the opera as well as nudity and sexual pantomime. The opera debuted to a rousing success, the Swiss crowds warmed to Patricia Petibon's lead ("Petiboooo" got booed off the stage here in Milan under Scala's meanie loggione for her underwhelming Alcina).
