Wozzeck: Plot and Summary
The story of Wozzeck revolves around the daily lives of soldiers as well as the population of a small town in rural Germany before the onset of World War I. Social exploitation, callousness, militarism and sadism are some of the dominant themes in this operatic sensation by Alban Berg.
Wozzeck is based on the incomplete drama Woyzeck left behind by German playwright Georg Büchner at the time of his death. Berg attended a production of it in 1914 in Vienna and immediately wanted to make an opera out of it. He put together a three-act piece with five scenes each from the writings that Büchner couldn’t finish.
While creating the libretto himself, Berg retained the play’s originality by focusing on the same stark realism and somewhat brutal language presented through short but gripping scenes. Wozzeck is a vivid projection of the doom and gloom that the world is hurtling towards. Clouds of war are on the horizon with the Germans and other world powers right in the thick of it.
