Towards Opening

Alban Berg
From the Repertoire

Wozzeck is a simple soldier trying to survive in an unjust world. His captain exploits him, he is the subject of scientific experiments conducted by the doctor, and his lover betrays him. One of the major operas of the 20th century in a riveting production. The story of Everyman who finds himself powerless against a suffocating society.
