CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry.

Franz Kafka's novella of the absurd and unexpected makes a fascinating subject for Arthur Pita's first commission for ROH2. Featuring Royal Ballet Principal Edward Watson in the central role of Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman who awakes one morning to find himself transformed into a giant insect. Starkly designed by Simon Daw, the Linbury auditorium will be transformed, in traverse, to provide an intimate, surreal Kafka-esque experience. Gregor Samsa's unspeakable nightmare is brought to life by innovative composer Frank Moon - who will play live, an international cast of uniquely individual performers, and Pita's distinctive theatrical style.Performers Edward Watson.
