Description

A harrowing, incomplete 19th-century play became Alban Berg’s operatic masterpiece of musical Expressionism, Wozzeck is endlessly inventive and heartrendingly tragic. Berg himself adapted the libretto from the play’s unordered scenes, and created important roles for the orchestra as well as the singers.
