Pancho Villa From a Safe Distance is an experimental chamber opera about the life and death of Pancho Villa. Commissioned by Ballroom Marfa, the project is the third installment of The Marfa Triptych, a genre-hopping trilogy of musical performances by Austin-based visionary composer Graham Reynolds (Golden Arm Trio, Golden Hornet Composer Laboratory).

The opera is an insightful examination of the Mexican and Mexican-American impact on the culture and politics of West Texas, contributing to the current and timely conversation about borders and the limitations of the concept of delineated states. With a libretto by Mexico City-based theater collective Lagartijas Tiradas Al Sol and direction by Shawn Sides (Rude Mechs).
