The classic opera by the Austria Alban Berg hits the stage of the London Coliseum in May with Carrie Cracknell taking on directing duties. It will be an opportunity to explore a vivid and tragic tale of the soldier whose actions have troubling consequences and has been seen on the stage on many occasion over the years – ever since it premiered in 1925 – though this will be the first time to see it with the English National Opera in some time, making this an undeniably must-see event.
The troubled soldier is having horrifying visions in “Wozzeck” and like “Medea” – which also appears this season – he winds up murdering his faithless lover. But this is not all to this celebrated tale, which Berg based upon a play by Georg Büchner.
Director Carrie Cracknell was once the Artistic Director of Dublin’s Gate Theatre and is now the Associate Director of The Young Vic in London, making her more than capable of staging a wonderful production of “Wozzeck”. Among her works are productions like “Breather Irregular” at the Gate Theatre, “A Doll’s House” at the Young Vic and shows like “Dolls”, “Death and the City” and “Macbeth-roh-tickets.aspx">Macbeth” around the UK.
In a season that also includes “La Bohème” and “Death in Venice”, among others, “Wozzeck” opens at the London Coliseum on Saturday 11th May 2013.
