Berg’s war experiences gave him the compassion and loathing to write his first, terrifyingly great, opera, in which a devious world destroys a soldier’s sense of identity and turns him into a murderer. Peter Mussbach’s highly-stylised production, in its expressionistic artificiality, heightens the emotional intensity of this searing work. In his hands Wozzeck becomes an agonising lament over lost innocence. Dale Duesing, as Wozzeck, is a charismatic, agile performer and Kristine Ciesinski, as Marie, is a consummate singer and actress of Berg’s work.
