William Branston

Acis in Acis and Galatea Passed

Event details

Handel’s much-loved opera is a high point of Baroque repertoire. Featuring a cast of young singers from London music conservatoires and an orchestra of professional players, this new production integrates dance with music to tell of Arcadian shepherd Acis’s love for nymph Galatea, and the fatal interference of monster Polyphemus. Handel’s glorious music – full of emotion, wit and soaring melodies is both elegant and exciting. Enchanting choruses, arias and comic moments will enthrall and delight. Sung in English and conducted by Lynton Atkinson, the production is brought to you by Hurn Court Opera, which provides high-quality performance opportunities to talented young singers.
