  • In his autobiography Opera Years Rolf Liebermann wrote: "Of all the film versions of operas in which I was involved, my favourite has always been Wozzeck, mainly because the interpreters and location were so convincingly authentic." And true to form, this film adoption of Alban Berg's Wozzeck, recorded in 1970, fascinates with its constantly developing tension from the first tone to the last accord.

  • Indeed the cast of this production is without doubt first rate, headed by Toni Blankenheim as Wozzeck and Sena Jurinac as Marie.

  • The film is now available on DVD for the first time.
