Lulu, the second opera by Alban Berg, is not a unique creation, It is a synthesis of several theories of composition and a number of traditional compositional practices found in the history of Western music.

This paper will attempt to trace the relationship between the drama Lulu and Verg’s musical interpretation of the drama in the selection of the opera designated as the sonata-allegro movement (in Act I, Sc. ii and iii).
