The woman responsible for the failed restoration of Ecce Homo - or the heroic creation of "Beast Jesus", depending on who you ask - is now the subject of an opera called Behold the Man.

The humorous opera tells the story of unsolicited restorator Cecilia Giménez and her botched retouching of the suffering Jesus Christ Fresco originally painted by Elías García Martínes in 1930. The opera will premiere in Boulder, Colorado next spring and in 2017 will travel to the small village of Borja, Spain where the painting was made.
