Since its beginnings, the history of opera has been shaped by adaptations of popular subjects and literary material. But according to what rules do such opera adaptations work? Which dramaturgical means are used in the transformative process of adaptation and what are the consequences for the original template? Based on the Danish opera Lulu by Friedrich Daniel Rudolph Kuhlau, first performed in Copenhagen in 1824, the adaptation of a narrative text is examined on a textual and musical level. In a direct comparison of the libretto with the literary template Lulu oder Die Zauberflöte by August Jacob Liebeskind, the dramaturgical means used and the consequences of this transformation are highlighted. Finally, the examination is devoted to what is probably the most important change in the media of an opera adaptation: the setting and the musical dramaturgical implementation.
