Show Information

The meeting of two extraordinary minds- Philip Glass and Franz Kafka. Both are masters of their craft. Each has his own instantly recognisable style. Together, they are the perfect match.

Kafka's nightmarish tale of a man arrested and prosecuted for an unknown crime by a relentless and inaccessible authority has lost none of its chilling potency down the years. Now, Philip Glass brings his signature music and dramatic force to this literary classic. Working with Christopher Hampton as librettist, this new opera faithfully follows Kafka's original story, relishing the author's notorious paranoia and bizarre sense of humour.
