Wozzeck was the first opera by Austrian composer Alban Maria Johannes Berg [1885 - 1935].
"Wozzeck is a product of his surroundings. Doomed from birth - condemned to live in a brutal and loveless world. Berg's cinematic music drama charts one man's descent into madness and murder. His story is told with music which is at times searing, at others gentle and lyrical. Richard Jones' highly charged industrial vision of this 20th century masterpiece is a profoundly affecting theatrical experience."
