The Depths of Despair: Alban Berg’s Wozzeck

All tickets are sold out!

Thursday, January 16, 2020 6:00 PM

Alban Berg’s avant garde masterwork Wozzeck returns to the Met this season in a new production by visionary artist William Kentridge. Based on an unfinished play by Georg Büchner, this tale of marital betrayal, social rejection, and cruel militarism in a bleak German village foretells of devastation on both local and global scales. In this pre-performance lecture, Opera Philadelphia’s Vice President of Community Initiatives, Michael Bolton, explores Berg’s groundbreaking achievement in 20th-century opera.
