Danton's death by Georg Büchner( Book )

452 editions published between 1835 and 2020 in 14 languages and held by 2,907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Danton's Death' is a dramatisation of the most extraordinary scenes of the French Revolution, of eloquence and execution. In 1794, the Revolution was reaching its climax. After a series of bloody purges the life-loving, volatile Danton is tormented by his part in the killing. His political rival, the driven and ascetic Robespierre, decides Danton's fate. A titanic struggle begins. Once friends who wanted to change the world together, now these two men stand against each other, one for compromise and the other for ideological purity, as the guillotine awaits. With a hair-raising on-rush of scenes and vivid dramatisation of complex, visionary characters, 'Danton's Death' has a claim to be one of the greatest political tragedies ever written. This version premiered at the National Theatre in 2010
Woyzeck by Georg Büchner( Book )

537 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in 17 languages and held by 2,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sacrificed to powers larger than himself, Woyzeck is one of the theatre's first anti-heroes. He serves a German captain and makes money by allowing a doctor to experiment on him, but his deeper morality leads him to a tragic end. A remarkable piece of theatre, Woyzeck is not bound by strictures of conventional space and time. It is a tiny play, but an epic."--Jacket

302 editions published between 1942 and 2020 in 14 languages and held by 1,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonce und Lena by Georg Büchner( Book )

217 editions published between 1880 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

„Zwei Königskinder, die füreinander von den Eltern zur Ehe bestimmt sind, fliehen. Ohne sich zu kennen, begegnen sie einander und verlieben sich. Büchners märchenhaftes Lustspiel über die Liebe, über Macht und Freiheit als hochkomische Satire temporeich, fantastisch, faszinierend illustriert“ (Die besten 7 Bücher für junge Leser. Die Deutschlandfunk-Bestenliste im Januar 2014)
Dantons Tod; and, Woyzeck by Georg Büchner( Book )

35 editions published between 1954 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georg Buchner, who died at the age of twenty-three, is particularly remembered for his striking presentation of the revolutionary predicament in Dantons Tod and for his impressive proletarian tragedy Woyzek." "This edition presents the two plays with an introduction and notes for students of German literature at school, at university and in centres of further education. Buchner's skilful contrast of political standpoints and his imaginative humanity have a permanent appeal. The combination of his innovative dramatic methods which inspired much of the dramatic practice of the twentieth century, his sympathy for the lower strata of society and his powerful expression of human anguish singles him out as an original and outstanding dramatist. Buchner is undoubtedly in the forefront of authors chosen for exciting courses introducing German literature to the English-speaking world."--BOOK JACKET

Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Recording )

60 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on real events and playwright Georg Büchner's starkly vehement text, Alban Berg's tragic opera is an epoch-making work, in stark contrast to the previous high romantic ideals of the genre, that led Schoenberg to exclaim 'now that's what I call an opera!'

17 editions published between 1942 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At his death at the age of 24 in 1837, Georg Buchner also left behind Leonce and Lena, Woyzeck, and Danton's Death - bold, psychologically and politically acute plays that were also well ahead of their time. His dramatic works exercised a profound influence on Brecht and Ionesco, as well as on the composer Alban Berg and the filmmaker Werner Hetzog."--BOOK JACKET
Woyzeck : ein Fragment ; Leonce und Lena : Lustspiel by Georg Büchner( Book )

85 editions published between 1952 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Woyzeck" zählt zu den meistgespielten Dramen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Es hat wie wohl kein anderes Werk dieser Gattung auf die Entwicklung des Dramas wie auf die Theatergeschichte eingewirkt. Die vier fragmentarischen "Woyzeck"--Handschriften konnten bis heute nicht vollständig entziffert werden. Henri Poschmann hat in der nun im insel taschenbuch vorliegenden Ausgabe den neu erschlossenen Text in zwei verschiedenen Darbietungsformen zusammengestellt. So soll das Werk zum einen in seinem Zusammenhang, soweit es sich aus den getrennt überlieferten Teilen mit Sicherheit erschließen läßt, als lesbares Ganzes vorgestellt werden, zum anderen aber soll mit dem vollständigen Textbestand der Entwürfe in ihrem Entstehungszusammenhang auch der Arbeitsprozeß, der sich darin abzeichnet, umfassend dokumentiert werden. Mit der Edition des Woyzeck in dieser speziellen Form wird eine erfaßbare, anschauliche Darbietung des Handschriftenbildes mit einem Maximum an Indizien für die Texterschließung erreicht. - Verlag
Wozzeck : opera in 3 acts and 15 scenes by Alban Berg( Visual )

The story encompasses the gruesome detail, horror, passion, and torment that characterized works of the German Expresionist movement.

In a jealous rage, he stabs her, then drowns when he tries to wash the blood from his hands

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan brings her phenomenal coloratura voice to bear on three bravura arias from Ligeti's opera Le grand macabre and three extracts featuring Marie, the doomed heroine of Berg's Wozzeck. The 'dazzling diamonds' of Webern's Six Orchestral Pieces and Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, a century old but still fresh as paint, open and conclude this tremendous programme, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle
