“★★★★★” –Financial Times
 

“This new work...has sprung perfectly-formed into life.”
The Independent

It’s strange enough that Josef K. spontaneously finds himself arrested on his 30th birthday — stranger still that no one seems able to explain why. He embarks on a year-long search for justice, encountering absurd characters and situations at every turn. Based on Franz Kafka’s novel, this dark comedy comes to St. Louis after a sold-out run at London’s Royal Opera House.

Baritone Theo Hoffman plays the embattled Joseph K., joined by soprano Susannah Biller and mezzo-soprano Sofia Selowsky.
