As the provocative new opera in four acts by Michael Nyman on a libretto by Victoria Hardie, Facing Goya takes the listener on a fantastical journey into the dark worlds of racist stereotyping, gene therapy and cloning while simultaneously dealing with the elitism and prejudice of various movements in pseudosciences and art criticism.
