ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

BEHOLD THE MAN, La Ópera de Cecilia was inspired by the true story of the 2012 botched restoration of the “Ecce Homo” fresco in Borja, Spain. Set against the backdrop of the “Great Recession,” our crossover comic opera follows the travails of its faithful restorer, Cecilia Giménez, and her good deed gone wrong. Scorned by her neighbors and shamed online for perpetuating the “worst restoration in art history,” Cecilia suffered greatly as her mangled image of Christ morphed into countless memes, qualifying it as an early “internet sensation.” But soon her humiliation turned to wonder as waves of adoring fans arrived to help restore her reputation and save the fortunes of the struggling town. Her disaster had become a miracle.
