by Alban Berg

Opera Screening

Sung in German with English subtitles

Estimated Run Time: 1 hour and 42 minutes

A dark story of madness and murder, Wozzeck is an adaptation of Büchner’s ground-breaking and highly influential work. Conceived in 1914, Wozzeck’s composition was halted by World War I, in which Berg served. The music was then completed between 1921 to 1923. The story depicts the life of soldiers and the townspeople of a rural German-speaking town. In three acts with five scenes each, Wozzeck’s music is continuous and provides no more than a few seconds of interlude music during which the scene changes must be made.
