MN Records releases Michael Nyman’s ground-breaking opera Facing Goya, the first- ever opera based on the subject of genetics and cloning, just as his first opera, The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, was the first to use a neurological case study.

Written during the media frenzy around the human genome discovery and Dolly the Sheep, this conceptual thriller tracks Goya’s skull – from the artist’s death to its rebirth as a sinister 21st century clone in a Frankenstein experiment designed to genetically engineer genius.
