The Tiger Lillies tell the story of Franz Woyzeck, a lowly soldier stationed in a provincial German town. His wife is cheating, his superior officers consider him less than human and his doctor is performing medical experiments on him. He begins to experience a series of apocalyptic visions while his jealous suspicions grow. Things do not end well. Woyzeck is a stage play written by Georg Büchner in 1836.

Madness, murder, whores, soldiers and....peas.

He left the work incomplete at his death, but it has been variously and posthumously "finished" by a variety of authors, editors and Woyzeck has become one of the most performed and influential plays in the German theatre repertory. The production of Woyzeck and the Tiger Lilies was performed in Vienna 24 September - 15 October 2011 and this cd features the songs from the show. Recorded with Christian Kolonovits and a 10 piece brass band, the 12 songs follow Woyzecks descent into madness. Released in 2011
