  • 5 Things to Know about WOZZECK

    By COC Staff


    Alban Berg’s unrelenting account of one man’s descent into madness brought forth a new musical language that captured the hopelessness, absurdity, and cruelty of a broken world. The story of a hapless soldier despised and exploited by his superiors, betrayed in love, and ultimately driven to murder, Wozzeck was the first opera by the Austrian composer and remains one of the most famous examples of 20th-century musical modernism. 

    Experience Berg’s masterful tragedy when it arrives in a bold new production from William Kentridge at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts next spring!
