Falk Struckmann stars in the towering title role of the disturbed, mistreated soldier, opposite Katarina Dalayman as Marie.

History

Alban Berg’s Wozzeck

Berg’s landmark work, based on Georg Büchner’s unfinished play, changed the operatic landscape when it premiered in Berlin in 1925. A searing portrayal of an oppressed individual in a hostile society, set to an atonal score, it has remained as relevant and contemporary ever since.

Wozzecks coming back!

I could not be more excited to see one of my all-time favorite operas conducted by Maestro Levine next season! This DVD from the fall of 2001 is simply stunning. Maestro Levine and the Met orchestra make exciting theater out of Bergs complex score, and Struckmans performance is an unforgettable record of stellar vocalism and drama. Graham Clark as the Captain also shines, unrivaled by anyone else in the role in my book. Should you have this wonderful gem – ‘Jawohl, Herr Hauptmann!’
