Waiting for the Barbarians is a novel by the South African-born writer J. M. Coetzee. First published in 1980, it was chosen by Penguin for its series Great Books of the 20th Century and won both the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize for fiction. American composer Philip Glass has also written an opera of the same name based on the book which premiered in September 2005 at Theater Erfurt, Germany.

Philip Glass Composer. To demonstrate our strength to the barbarians.

Philip Glass and librettist Christopher Hampton have adapted J. Coetzee's parable about power and inhumanity in an opera that staggers in both dramatic power and beauty. The story is set in a town on the fringes of a nameless Empire that is in the process of expanding over the lands of wandering peoples called The Barbarians. As settlers encroach on grazing lands, the Barbarians are led to raid a few cattle, the same solution that Native Americans were forced into as European settlers forged westward. Before I lay into Philip Glass's "Waiting for the Barbarians", let me tell you where I'm coming from. I love his more "fusion" work, his pieces that aren't 100% minimalist. Where many prefer Einstein on the Beach, I love his Beauty and the Beast, his 5th Symphony and Satyagraha. Glass is always torn between the forces of heaven and hell, of angelic perfection and crude noise.
