About the Event

Alban Berg's 20th century masterpiece, 'Wozzeck' returns to the Paris Opera stage in William Kentridge's expressionistic staging.

Berg composed the story of Wozzeck, a soldier tormented by the infidelities of his beloved Marie, as a series of interconnected musical fragments. The opera is a testament to the composer's formal virtuosity, but its emotional impact is immediate, touching the audience like a desperate and rebellious cry.
