Michael Nyman Band / Michael Nyman

Facing Goya is a taut thriller that follows one woman's passionate search for the 18th Century Spanish artist Goya's missing skull. Her journey takes us into the dangerous world of racial stereotyping, gene therapy, cloning and humankind's follies as seen through Goya's paintings, etchings and captions. The idea for the opera arose from Michael Nyman's fascination with the insidious study of craniometry that developed in the 1870s.

Goya was regarded as one of the greatest painters of his time. Buried in Bordeaux, legend has it that he asked friends to ensure his head was removed prior to burial to prevent the early craniometrists and researchers of eugenics from getting hold of his brain.

"Facing Goya asks the question 'if Goya's skull was found, and if indeed, Goya was cloned, what would happen?'"
