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.
