Adapted and directed by Conall Morrison, with lyrics by Stephen Clark and musical direction by Conor Linehan, Woyzeck in Winter is an electrifying fusion of two masterpieces: Büchner’s play Woyzeck and Schubert’s Die Winterreise.
It features a sensational Irish cast. Patrick O’Kane (Woyzeck) and Camille O’Sullivan (Marie) will be joined by Stephen Brennan, Peter Coonan, Susannah De Wrixon, Barry McGovern, Rory Nolan, Shane O’Reilly and Rosaleen Linehan.
Following its world premiere at the Black Box Theatre in Galway on Monday 17 July as part of Galway International Arts Festival, it will open the autumn season on the main stage of the Barbican in London, from 13 – 16 September.
Set design for Woyzeck in Winter will be by Jamie Vartan, with costumes designed by Joan O’Clery, lighting designed by Ben Ormerod and choreography by Liz Roche.
