Faber Music is pleased to announce the publication of the vocal score to Coll’s dazzling chamber opera Café Kafka, in time for the work’s Spanish premiere in May 2016.
Scored for five singers and ten instrumentalists, the 45-minute work will run for four performances at the Palau de Les Arts, Valencia. Taking its cue from Meredith Oakes’s punchy, cleverly-assembled libretto (based on fragments from Kafka) this explosive gem brings out every nuance of the bizarre scenario’s comedy, irony and profundity. A new evening-length chamber opera after the Spanish Golden Age playwright Lope de Vega is currently in development.
The vocal score of Café Kafka, priced at £14.99, is available from the Faber Music Store
