Facing Goya jumps from location to location, zig-zagging through three centuries mixing sci-fi, art history, and a little conspiracy theory to raise questions about who we are and how expectations factor into how we treat each other. Award-winning composer Michael Nyman partnered with librettist Victoria Hardie to construct this alluring opera. With a cinematic approach, Nyman uses driving minimalist rhythms and lyric melodies to explore ethics and artistic creativity. Singaporean Director Ong Keng Sen, who led the 2006 Festival sell out Geisha, directs this American premiere.
