Alban Berg's Wozzeck was the focus of a recent ROH Insight session with conductor Mark Elder. The event saw the conductor introduce the opera alongside assistant director Amy Lane.

'Wozzeck is one of the most important works of the 20th century...it's a very powerful experience,' Mark told the audience. As well as the opera and its music, the session also examined the play by Georg Büchner which inspired the opera, as well as a number of other adaptations of the work.
