Wozzeck is the only opera Alban Berg ever completed. This production was mounted in 2009 as a joint production with the Bavarian State Opera. The production was directed by Andreas Kriegenburg, who also directed the production of Rigoletto which opens the season. Kriegenburg’s Wozzeck offers a biting depiction of the way that widespread poverty and violence can link one generation to the next in a society. Conducting will be Günter Neuhold. The title role will be sung by George Nigl, a baritone who maintains an active international performance schedule. Marie will be sung by Elena Zhidkova, with whom audiences should be familiar thanks to her appearances in past NNTT opera productions.
