Woyzeck In Winter

adapted and directed by Conall MorrisonLandmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival

Woyzeck in Winter is an electrifying fusion of two masterpieces: Büchner’s Wozyeck and Schubert’s Die Winterreise.

Woyzeck and Die Winterreise were written within ten years of each other – the twenty-four songs of Die Winterreise in 1827, the twenty-six scenes of the play in 1836 – by troubled geniuses, both of whom died young. Thrillingly re-imagined by Conall Morrison and a leading creative team, this daring new production is sung in English.

Starring Patrick O’Kane as Woyzeck and Camille O’Sullivan as Marie, Woyzeck in Winter had its world premiere, in a co-production between Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival, in July 2017.

Co-commissioned by the Barbican in London.
