Munich: Kriegenburg with triumphant new Wozzeck

Andreas Kriegenburg (director) and Kent Nagano (conductor) have created a new production of Wozzeck at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, which was rather universally hailed a masterpiece by both press and audiences at the premiere earlier this week. Not even a single audience boo was heard at opening night...

Michael Volle and Michaela Schuster played the leads, and especially Michael Volle reived major praise. Andreas Kriegenburger has mostly worked in theater and has previously directed an award-winning theater production of Wozzeck.

A video with excerpts from the production may be seen here.
