William Kentridge Metropolitan Opera

In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. 

William Kentridge brings his visual imagination to Wozzeck, Alban Berg’s operatic masterpiece, set in an apocalyptic pre–World War I environment. Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin is on the podium for Wozzeck, with baritone Peter Mattei making his debut as the title character. Soprano Elza van den Heever is Wozzeck’s unfaithful mate, and the commanding cast also includes tenor Christopher Ventris as the Drum-Major, bass-baritone Christian Van Horn as the Doctor, and tenor Gerhard Siegel as the Captain.

Wozzeck is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; Salzburg Festival; the Canadian Opera Company, Toronto; and Opera Australia.
