The opera’s libretto presents a complex portrait of the ethics of science and medicine and the tension between progress and humanity. Beatriz is the protégée of her mad scientist father. In developing her talents and protecting her body as a scientific specimen, Dr. Rappaccini has turned her touch to poison.  A twist on the classic femme fatale, Beatriz wants to love but her body is riddled with poison from the toxic plants she and her father experiment with. How far will they go to find cures for diseases?  What is the distinction between science and medicine? Can one live for both work and love?
