Wozzeck tells the story of a simple soldier, troubled by visions, who murders his unfaithful partner and dies, leaving behind an orphaned child. Austrian composer Alban Berg’s early 20th-century masterpiece is performed by the ENO for the first time in 25 years.

This new production is by acclaimed director Carrie Cracknell. One of the most exciting young British directors of her generation, Carrie Cracknell is an Associate Director at the Young Vic, where her recent production of A Doll’s House was a critical success. Cracknell was previously co-Artistic Director at the Gate Theatre, London where her productions included Nick Payne’s version of Electra (co-production with Young Vic); Lucy Kirkwood’s adaptation of Hedda; I Am Falling (transferred to Sadler’s Wells); Mark Ravenhill’s Armageddon; and The Sexual Neuroses of our Parents by Lukas Barfuss.

Wozzeck is conducted by ENO’s award-winning Music Director Edward Gardner, whose conducting of Peter Grimes (2012) was described as having ‘breathtaking lyrical ferocity’ (The Guardian).
