Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck is a play that has fascinated many  …. I have seen a number of powerful productions, but none that has married that power to a sense of coherence. Until now.  
★★★★ The Financial Times

‘richly impressive …. an absorbing hundred minutes of theatre, beautifully staged and performed’ Schubert and Büchner fuse to make an absorbing hundred minutes of theatre   This is a marriage between two masterpieces of Germanic culture, created a decade apart… ★★★★ The Telegraph

‘brilliant … a pioneering piece of music-theatre’ Woyzeck in Winter review – a haunting fusion of two unfinished masterpieces The anguish and torment of Büchner’s tragedy and Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise combine to brilliant effect in a pioneering piece of… music-theatre  ★★★★ The Guardian

Woyzeck in Winter is an electrifying fusion of two masterpieces - Büchner’s Woyzeck and Schubert’s Winterreise. Woyzeck and Die Winterreise were written within ten years of each other - the twenty-four songs of Winterreise in 1827 and the twenty-four scenes of Woyzeck in 1836 - by troubled geniuses, both of whom died young.

Thrillingly reimagined by Conall Morrison and a leading creative team, this visually stunning new production exploits the uncanny similarities between these two dark masterworks, drawing on Schubert’s sublime music to illuminate the inner landscape of Woyzeck’s tortured mind. With the startling story set amid a terrain of broken pianos, vivid scenes flow seamlessly into raw, passionate songs, translated into English by Stephen Clark.

Starring Patrick O’Kane as Woyzeck and Camille O’Sullivan as Marie, the music will be played live by Conor Linehan,  and the phenomenal Irish cast also includes such outstanding actor-singers as Stephen Brennan, Peter Coonan, Susannah De Wrixon, Rosaleen Linehan, Barry McGovern, Rory Nolan and Shane O’Reilly.

Suitable for ages 14+

Co-commissioned by the Barbican, London.
