Wozzeck
WILLIAM KENTRIDGE AND OPERA AUSTRALIA | Australia
Australian Premiere

Georg Büchner’s unfinished story of a hapless soldier driven mad by army life and his faithless lover is recognised as one of the seminal dramas of the past 250 years.

Here, Alban Berg’s stunning operatic adaption – a landmark in 20th century music – is brought to vivid life by William Kentridge, one of the great visual artists of our time.

Kentridge takes his audience into the shattered mind of Wozzeck, and into visions of the carnage Berg witnessed firsthand as a soldier in WWI.

As Kentridge’s animated charcoal drawings lay bare a ruined Europe and a tortured soul, the audience watches aghast as Wozzeck stumbles toward his doom. 

★★★★★  “[A] stupendous production … it restores one’s sorely tried faith in what a director’s imagination can give to opera.”
The Telegraph

“The audience seemed stunned at the end, yet grateful” – The New York Times
