Release Date:

Calixto Bieito`s controversial but visually stunning production of Wozzeck is set in a grisly, chaotic, post-industrial maze, giving a contemporary edge to the disturbing and hair-raising intensity of Alban Berg`s expressionistic masterpiece. The all too human drama is emphasised, with terrifying beauty, by the stupendous cast of singing actors with the Orchestra and Chorus of the Gran Teatre del Liceu, producing a strong, relentless musical experience under the inspired baton of maestro Sebastian Weigle.
