Based on real events and drawing on Georg Büchner s revolutionary play, Alban Berg s Wozzeck turns a grimly tragic narrative of violence and murder into one of the most powerful and original operas of the 20th century.

Berg s uncompromising portrayal of brutality and madness generated much controversy, but the significance of Wozzeck was soon recognised; its compelling lyrical expansiveness, large-scale dramatic gestures and remarkable musical structures producing music of overwhelming emotional intensity. The Financial Times declared this to be `a beautiful, moving, engrossing production... this is a consummate Wozzeck, blending clarity, lyricism, compassion and crushing force.`
 

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.
