Program notes

A work in three acts, Wozzeck was Berg's first opera. Inspired by the play of the German playwright Georg Büchner, Woyzeck, who was himself inspired by an apparently banal event of 1821: Wozzeck, a Leipzig barber, assassinated his mistress and was condemned to death after trying in vain to demonstrate his insanity.
