Friday, October 5 at 7:00p and Sunday, October 7 at 2:00p, 7:00p: The Days and Nights Festival teams up with the San Francisco’s Opera Parallele with a new production of Glass’ opera In the Penal Colony. Based on a story by Franz Kafka, the opera is set at the turn of the 20th century on a remote island, where a high-ranking visitor arrives to witness the use of a strange machine in the execution of a prisoner. The story and opera are a parable for the consequences of the abuse of power and corruption.
