“Pierrot Lunaire” is a melodrama by Arnold Schoenberg, set to poems by Albert Giraud and translated into German by Otto Erich Hartleben.
“Pierrot Lunaire” consists of three groups of seven poems – In the first group, Pierrot sings of love, sex and religion; in the second, of violence, crime, and blasphemy; and in the third of his return home to Bergamo, with his past haunting him.
