《Wozzeck》 is the first opera written by Alban Berg with the technique of Atonality;the script is adapted from the German realism pioneer Georg Buchner’ s drama of the same title.In this work,Berg using symbolic skill,exertly excavated its containing meaning,symbol,as the interval between mark and meaning,constitues work’s inner-space,avioding running-off and plainly for this expression of the drama’s implication.With this concealing way to mind reality,makes the Opera based on drama deepens intension purport.As compose,untinuous usasge pours into symbol in leading motivation,describle music-words and figure.In immineat danger which Berg lived,only mindered to distress reality can make fragile for symbolic inner-space,shorting of infection and inspiration.Undoubtly,socail culture and language environment should be understood as work’s out-space;it makes 《Wozzeck》 ’s inner-space got orientation,comparing to the relatively stable out environment,Expressionism,emphasized clever expression,is the best way to expand out-space. 《Wozzeck》 ’s expressionism deeply develops symbolism.Watching intently stifle the social reality,combining the inner-space extended by symbolism and out-space contained in social culture context,it deepens the intension between symbolic meaning and the work.In adition,the composer’s spontaneous stress to music-in-itself,makes the work to be logical,and meaning,links up with the audience.pursuing ranguard but not abandoning tradition,and avoiding off-balance state through’Charisma’ character,Berg successfully relay audience the inner-and out-space which is combined by symbolicism and manifestism.As the application and extending for symbolic means,Wozzeck becomes paragion of the opera in the 20th century.
