About

In few words:

An indispensable piece of modern music and one of the most emblematic of the 20th century, Wozzeck is a dazzling piece. Adapting Georg Büchner’s play, Alban Berg managed to capture the social and psychological violence roiling the soldier Franz Wozzeck, with a force and precision rarely attained in opera. Browbeaten by the captain, exploited by the doctor, deceived by Marie, Wozzeck leads us to reflect on the most tragic effects of madness both on a isolated individual and on a group. This expressionist world blends just as strikingly into the staging of William Kentridge, one of the major visual artists of the contemporary scene. His drawings and videos appear to us like projections of Wozzeck’s imagination, exposing the horror of the First World War.

CHARACTERS

Wozzeck: A psychologically fragile soldier exposed to persecution by his superiors

Margret: Marie’s neighbour
