Opera Quiz: Test Your Knowledge of Alban Berg’s ‘Wozzeck’

“Wozzeck” is, for many, the crowning achievement of Alban Berg’s career.

While the opera premiered on December 14 1925, Berg actually saw the premiere of the play upon which he based the opera on May 5, 1914. We chose to celebrate that day because it was from that initial experience that the opera germinated in the composer’s mind.

So here is a little quiz to see how well you know this sophisticated, avant-garde masterwork that continues to dominate our operatic experiences to this day.
