Mezzo TV — Wozzeck
Not Russian classical opera of the 19th century but, on the contrary, a Western 20th century avant-garde work (already however a classic) in a Bolshoi Theatre production is to be transmitted live by Mezzo, the popular French TV channel devoted to classical music, opera, ballet, jazz and world music. “Listen, Look, Dare” is Mezzo’s slogan. And in producing Alan Berg’s opera Wozzeck, the Bolshoi has demonstrated that this is an attitude it fully supports. The live broadcast of this opera (conductor Teodor Currentzis, director Dmitri Tcherniakov) from the Bolshoi will be on 26 November 2010, at 5 p.m. Paris time.
