The exceptional singer Christian Gerhaher can be seen as Wozzeck at the Opernhaus Zurich this 12, 15, 18 February (with English subtitles).
Wozzeck rushes through a world he cannot unravel. He is humiliated by the captain, tortured by the doctor with absurd medical experiments. And his lover Marie, with whom he has a child, cheats on him with the drum major. Wozzeck becomes a murderer and stabs Marie. Alban Bergs Wozzeck , premiered in 1925, is a congenial musical implementation of Georg Büchner’s profound drama text written a hundred years earlier.
In German with English subtitles.
