Der Fall Woyzeck (The Woyzeck Case)

Saturday 27.04., 7:30 pm

Schauspiel Leipzig


“In 1821, Johann Christian Woyzeck stabbed the widow Woost, who was his lover, to death in Leipzig’s Vorstadt. He had previously been an apprentice in Leipzig and returned to the city after years as a soldier in various armies during the hither and thither of the Napoleonic liberation wars.
Like many others in Germany, Georg Büchner learned about this case in Leipzig, since its trial took three years and garnered a great deal of attention. As if beneath a burning lens, this case focused on several topics that had only recently become issues of general debate: Questions of criminal responsibility and insanity as well as social concerns about living circumstances and opportunities.”

“Schauspiel Leipzig’s artistic director Enrico Lübbe will take a new look at the material in Leipzig, following the 2011 Chemnitz drama production and the staging of Alban Berg’s opera version in 2017 in Erfurt, conducted by Joanna Mallwitz. Etienne Pluss, who received the Theatre Prize DER FAUST for his design of “Violetter Schnee” at Berlin’s Staatsoper Unter den Linden in 2019, will create the set. His work has most recently taken him to the Salzburg Festival (“Il Trittico”, directed by Christoph Loy) and, together with director Claus Guth, to the festival in Aix-en-Provence and to Teatro San Carlo in Naples.”
