The Performing Arts Center presents Berg Wozzeck. Wozzeck is a 30-year-old Leipzig militiaman who earns extra money for his mistress and child by acting as a regimental servant of the Captain and by being subject of the Doctor's experiments. He assassinated his mistress and was condemned to death after trying in vain to demonstrate his insanity.
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts baritone Peter Mattei’s highly anticipated debut as Wozzeck. Soprano Elza van den Heever is Wozzeck’s unfaithful mate, and the commanding cast includes tenor Christopher Ventris as the Drum-Major, bass-baritone Christian Van Horn as the Doctor, and tenor Gerhard Siegel as the Captain.
