Wozzeck



Approximate running time 1 hrs. 37 min.

Wozzeck’s longtime champion James Levine conducts Berg’s gripping score of passion, despair, and murder. Deborah Voigt and Thomas Hampson step into the demanding roles of Marie and the hapless title character for the first time in their remarkable careers.

“The vocally and dramatically affecting performance of Marie… by the soprano Deborah Voigt… she brought earthy poignancy to the role, especially in Marie’s tender moments with her child. When roused to passion and torment, she sent Marie’s outbursts soaring with visceral intensity.” (New York Times)

“The conductor James Levine drew an incisive and rapturous performance from the great Met Orchestra and this inspired cast.” (New York Times)
