Pancho Villa From A Safe Distance is a bilingual, cross-border, experimental chamber opera about Pancho Villa, the enigmatic general, legendary bandit, and hero of the Mexican Revolution. Through a non-linear collage of scenes—from or inspired by—the life of the complex, contradictory, and controversial leader, the piece provides a timely lens into the relationships and overlaps between the communities of Mexico, the United States, and the borderlands. Originally commissioned by Ballroom Marfa and co-commissioned by Fusebox Festival, this Creative Capital Award winning project brings together an impressive array of artistic collaborators from both sides of the Rio Grande: Austin, TX-based composer Graham Reynolds, librettists Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol of Mexico City, director Shawn Sides of Rude Mechs, and an ensemble of two vocalists and six instrumentalists built around Grammy-winning producer-guitarist Adrian Quesada.
