Berg
Wozzeck

From "James Levine: Celebrating 40 Years at the Met" CD Box Set James Levine’s affection for Berg’s searing masterpiece has given Met audiences many opportunities to experience this groundbreaking score. Here Levine conducts José van Dam in the title role, who gives a heartbreaking performance as the downtrodden, humiliated soldier. Anja Silja is Marie, the mother of Wozzeck’s child, who cannot resistant the cheap glamour of the handsome Drum Major (Richard Cassilly)—leading Wozzeck to finally give up his desperate struggle for existence.
