I note that in my first Lulu, in 1989, Dr. Schön was sung by the great Hans Hotter, who was then 80. It was the only time I saw him live. In my second Lulu, Countess Geschwitz was sung by Frederica von Stade, in her only run in that role. I remember very little about Hotter, but von Stade, regal in a bottle-green velvet dress, was unforgettably vivd.
