Clark Wozzeck, Feature for WDR

Anatomy of a Murder -- the opera "Wozzeck" clearly abandons romance and harmony, and it also leaves behind Verdi's sweet-and-sour taste of drama. Alban Berg's characters reflect the time in which they live. Emphasizing psychological aspects, the opera calls for performers who not only have a good voice but also enormous acting talent. Today's performance at the Metropolitan Opera showcases one of the stongest character performers in the opera world. Graham Clark, who sings the role of the Captain, is from England. His professional background is completely unrelated to music, and as an opera singer, he attracts the roles of villains. Georg Hirsch spoke with Graham Clark in New York.
