Metamorphosis

113 Sturt Street, Southbank, Victoria, 3006
25 - 27 Oct 2018

Gregor is a broken man, exhausted by eternal work and an ungrateful family. Until one morning, he awakes, and is not a man at all. Kafka’s grotesque tragedy of a man turned insect is an engrossing story.

Music adds an edgy intensity: Metamorphosis as opera is riveting, shattering, morbidly fascinating theatre.

Brian Howard’s score is percussive, inventive and courageous. Twelve musicians and six singers ratchet up the horror and pathos of this work: a story of social alienation in a modern, inhuman world.

Director Tama Matheson and designer Mark Thompson focus their creative talents on an unusual stage. This chamber opera will take place in The Coopers Malthouse Merlyn Theatre.

Simon Lobelson performs the demanding role of Gregor and Paul Fitzsimon conducts.
