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 will wring every nuance of tension and paranoia from the story as Josef K seeks to confront the system that is set on destroying him.
And it’s not all darkness and despair. Glass and Kafka share an infectious sense of humour and the ability to delight in the absurd.
Director: Michael McCarthy Conductor: Michael RaffertySung in English
The Trial is a co-commission and co-production between Music Theatre Wales, the Royal Opera House, Theater Magdeburg and Scottish Opera
