About the event

Wozzeck is running, always running, with his shadow in pursuit. He is poor, and he is weary. He is used, and used up. He is a brute, ruled by brutes. And now his mind is imploding.

Berg’s fascinating opera is a portrait of a ravaged man, drawn with vivid clarity through unsettling music and sharp, structured scenes. One of the most exciting visual artists of our generation, William Kentridge, directs and illustrates this extraordinary production, a collaboration between Opera Australia, the Metropolitan Opera, Salzburg Festival and the Canadian Opera Company.

Kentridge’s haunting illustrations offer a window into the carnage of Wozzeck’s world. Charcoal drawings fill the stage, frenetic scribbles are illuminated and then erased, as we wonder, with Wozzeck, what is real.

"The audience seemed stunned at the end, yet grateful."
