Notes & Reviews:
At the beginning of Kafka's novella, the metamorphosis has already taken place. Now there is only ordeal. The choice made by Michaël Levinas, to represent what cannot be represented, is fascinating. A Lille Opera production.
Gramophone Magazine, November 2012
In this short but expansively expressive opera, transformation is never one way: dramatically, dream is constantly morphing into nightmare and back...the eight-strong cast of singers seems utterly assured...the five 'madrigals' of the opera proper should serve as an intriguing test case for anyone suspecting that Kafka's early-20th-century brand of broad-brush surrealism might be past its sell-by date.
