Summary, etc.:
In assessing Berǵs operatic masterwork, investigate the aftermath of World War I in Germany and its imprint on the operáa psychological climate of rage, disillusion, and alienation in the wake of the waŕs barbarity and hypocrisy. Observe how Berǵs own wartime experience linked him with the life of Franz Wozzeck, the operás protagonist. In excerpts from the operás first and third acts, hear how Berg achieves a searing musical portrayal of Wozzecḱs disordered mind.
