Wozzeck is an opera by the Austrian composer Alban Berg based on a fragmentary literary work, Woyzeck, by Georg B├╝chner. The opera was first performed in 1925.. The subject matter -  the inevitability of hardship and exploitation for the poor and his fatal romance with Marie is uncompromisingly presented. The opera depicts Woyzecks descent into madness and murder as the inevitable consequence of sexual betrayal.

This course uses DVDs of complete musical productions and a 65-page syllabus including biographies. production sources and history, commentary, analysis and synopses.
