WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Kafka's terrifying tale of a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed to neither him nor the reader has lost none of its power down the years. The great American minimalist is now bringing 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 tries to confront the system.
