About This Performance

A harrowing, incomplete 19th-century play became Alban Berg’s operatic masterpiece of musical Expressionism, endlessly inventive and heartrendingly tragic. Berg himself adapted the libretto from the play’s unordered scenes, and created important roles for the orchestra as well as the singers: onstage there is a marching band for a military parade and a boozy dance band – including guitar, accordion, and a deliberately out-of-tune upright piano – for the tavern scene.

Come for:

Our Conductor Laureate brings his Philharmonia Orchestra for this very special one-night-only concert performance.

And more:

The international cast includes German soprano Angela Denoke as Maria, the role she sang in her Salzburg Festival debut, conducted by Claudio Abbado.

Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.
