In conjunction  the exhibition, Goya’s War: Los Desastres de la Guerra, the museum is pleased to present a dramatic reading of a short visionary, experimental play inspired by one of the most remarkable and disturbing of Goya’s  famous “Black Paintings,” Goya’s most personal and emotional statements in art. Presented by playwright and Colorado State University professor, Dr. Eric Prince, the play is a profound meditation on the painting itself and the unseen vision that forms the subject matter of the work. The work was originally staged as Goatsong (Edinburgh and San Diego 1984) and as Nocturno (The British National Student Theatre Company, London and Edinburgh 1989).  One national theatre critic wrote: “One of the most challenging pieces of theatre at Edinburgh this year…an extraordinary tour de force…an important play which questions what constitutes theatre as an art form.” (T.E.S)
