Woyzeck in Winter is an electrifying fusion of two masterpieces: Büchner’s Woyzeck and Schubert’s Winterreise.
Woyzeck and Winterreise were written within ten years of each other – the twenty–four songs of Winterreise in 1827, the twenty–four scenes of the play 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, sung in English, promises to be a Festival highlight.
Starring Patrick O’Kane as Woyzeck and Camille O’Sullivan as Marie, the music will be played live at each performance by musical director Conor Linehan, and the stellar Irish cast also includes Stephen Brennan, Peter Coonan, Susannah De Wrixon, Rosaleen Linehan, Barry McGovern, Rory Nolan and Shane O’Reilly.
Co–commissioned by the Barbican, London.
‘One of the most intense and intelligent performers in Irish theatre.’

‘When she sings it’s as though her breath is soaked in paraffin – one spark, and the whole room would ignite.’
