In 2000 composer Philip Glass wrote a chamber opera, In the Penal Colony, based on the story. A 24-minute film adaptation by Turkish-born Canadian filmmaker Sibel Guvenc was released in 2006. In 2009, a young Iranian filmmaker, Narges Kalhor, showed her short film adaptation at the Nuremberg Film Festival. Frank Zappa, in the liner notes of the Mothers of Invention album We're Only in It for the Money, recommends reading the short story before listening to the track "The Chrome Plated Megaphone of Destiny. Ian Curtis of the band Joy Division was inspired by "In the Penal Colony" to write the song "Colony" from the album Closer. The novel The Shadow of the Torturer, by Gene Wolfe, follows the exploits of a member of a guild of torturers.

Music by Philip Glass Libretto written by Rudolph Wurlitzer based on the tale by Franz Kafka. CAST: Soloist(s): Tenor, Baritone, 2 Actors; Orchestration: str (Al. Tenor, Bass, 2 Spoken + vln(1&2). In the Penal Colony is based on Kafka’s short story of the same title. The story describes an execution planned for one of the prisoners of the colony for which and up until then, an execution machine has been routinely used. The new album features all new music including the world premiere recordings of new works by Philip Glass, Gavin Bryars, David Skidmore, Peter Martin, and Robert Dillon.

Glass's take on Kafka is a suitably challenging listen, writes Fiona Maddocks. Music Theatre Wales/Rafferty (Orange Mountain Music). Based on Kafka's 1914 short story, Philip Glass's chamber opera explores the circumstances of a condemned man awaiting execution. The Officer (Omar Ebrahim) believes in upholding the old methods of torture and killing; the Visitor (Michael Bennett) is appalled by what he sees but unable to intervene as the inevitable occurs. This is a tough but worthwhile listen, using the same cast as Music Theatre Wales's 2010 staging. The familiar oscillations of Glass's score, skilfully played by a quintet of strings with electronic noises off, are put to intense, inventive use.
