Alban Berg’s opera Wozzeck is about human vulnerability and desperation in a brutal world. It’s a modern masterpiece which stands out amongst the operas of the 20th century, and creates music out of a range of emotions: from hope and joy to existential angst and infinite sorrow.

The young soldier Wozzeck is mocked and taken advantage of by his superiors. He makes a bit of money on the side for his girlfriend Marie and their bastard son by letting a doctor perform medical experiments on him. When his beloved Marie, another victim of circumstance, is unfaithful to him, his world gradually falls apart. The result is fatal. 

In this version, stage director Christof Loy focuses on the interior life of the characters, and gives them clear-cut characteristics. Together with Herbert Murauer’s powerful backdrops and Berg’s intense music, he transports us into Wozzeck’s progressing delusions, his confused self-image and his doubts.
