Maat Saxophone Quartet + De Diamantfabriek – Metamorphosis, A Virtual Opera

In Metamorphosis, a unique adaptation of Kafka’s 1912 novella in the form of a virtual opera, created by composer Nuno Lobo, video artist Pedro Lobo, music theater production house Diamantfabriek, and theater maker Sean Hauser, the musicians of Maat Saxophone Quartet narrate the story of the protagonist Gregor, who undergoes a surreal transformation with a significant impact on his daily life and family relationships. An immersive, cinematic all-round experience addressing current themes in the present digital era such as loss of identity, alienation, and social pressure from family and society.
