About

‘It’s unique and absurd … timeless and universal’. So choreographer and director Arthur Pita describes Kafka’s powerful novella The Metamorphosis, which has inspired this award-winning production for The Royal Ballet.

Principal dancer Edward Watson won critical acclaim for his ‘repellently brilliant’ (The Independent) portrayal of Gregor Samsa’s transformation into an insect, while the supporting cast vividly convey the conflicting reactions of Gregor’s family.

Frank Moon’s dramatic score – performed live by the composer himself – and Simon Daw’s austere designs complement this disturbing and compelling reinterpretation of Kafka’s masterpiece.

Extra features: Introduction to The Metamorphosis, Bringing The Metamorphosis to Life and a Cast gallery.
