    What are you in for

    Watching Wozzeck is almost like a sketch in motion on a blank canvas as the opera takes you through the journey of a ravaged man set against the backdrop of World War I. Contradictory to traditional opera characters, the protagonist is an anti-hero and presents his visions and torments through grim charcoal drawings frenetically scribbled and then erased, accompanied by unsettling music conducted by Andrea Molino.

    Wozzeck is written by Alban Berg and directed by one of the most exciting visual artists of this generation, William Kentridge. Michael Honeyman plays the protagonist alongside a talented cast.

    The opera is performed in German with surtitle screens above the stage that translate the words into English.

    Voucher Information: No need to print! You can show your voucher on your smartphone or other device.

    So there’s no last-minute rush please arrive at the start point 15 minutes early. The ushers will close the doors at show time and may not allow latecomers in until a suitable gap in the performance.

    Check your phone and other electronic devices, and anything else that might go beep or ring or buzz: make sure they are all off. A glowing screen can also be distracting to those around you so don't check your phone during the performance.

    Photography, sound recording or any kind of filming is not permitted during the performance but you're welcome to take photos before and after the performance and at interval.

    It’s a lot of fun to put on your glamorous best for a night at the opera, but casual dress is perfectly acceptable. There’s no compulsory dress code – wear what you’ll feel comfortable in. It can get cold in the theater, so consider an extra layer.

    We want everyone to be a part of this magical experience. If you have any special seating requirements, drop a mail to our local operator at customerservice@opera.org.au and they will ensure to help you plan the best way they could.
