The film is an adaptation of the 1916 zarzuela Goyescas by Enrique Granados, and also drew inspiration from the work of the artist Francisco Goya. The film was part of the popular trend for operetta films in Europe during the era. Perojo had been planning the production for around a decade before it was ultimately made.[1]
