Goyescas by Enrique Granados

Honoring the centennial of its premiere and composer Granados’ death, “Goyescas” a cloak-and-dagger story of mistaken betrayals spins with the passion of Spanish dance.

Inspired by Francisco de Goya’s paintings, this opera-ballet is rarely seen in America. Paintings come to life in writer Elizabeth Pringle’s new adaptation, coupled with Manuel de Falla’s Seven Spanish Popular Songs.
