In The Penal Colony

In The Penal Colony

A prison, disconnected from the modern world. A man unaware of his crime and about to be executed without trial. A belief that only through the most horrific death imaginable will the condemned see the error of their ways. When an outsider is plunged into this nightmare world will he have the conscience to intervene? Would you? Philip Glass's compulsive and beautifully haunting music is instantly recognisable. From symphonies and operas to award-winning film scores such as The Truman Show, The Hours and Notes on a Scandal, he simultaneously breaks boundaries and captivates audiences. In this darkly unsettling opera, Glass rakes up the tension to a taut, unforgettable climax as judge, victim and witness stare into the abyss.

by Phillip Glass with libretto by novelist Rudolph Wurlitzer based on A short story by Kafka
