The composer Alban Berg (1885-1935), a pupil and associate of Schoenberg, lived in the mainstream of well-to-do Austrian society. His marriage to the beautiful Helene was thought to be made in heaven. But how can this doyen of Viennese respectability be reconciled with the composer who wrote the dark operas Wozzeck and Lulu?

Soprano Kirstine Ciesinki, who features in specially-staged extracts from Lulu and Wozzeck and sings "Nacht" from Seven Early Songs, travels to Vienna, Prague, the USA and German to investigate Berg's life.
