Handel

Acis and Galatea

To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the very first performance of Acis and Galatea, the London Handel Festival presents a colourful staging of Handel's popular pastoral opera.

The bittersweet story, taken from Ovid's Metamorphoses, tells of the love between the shepherd Acis and sea-nymph Galatea, thwarted by the jealous giant Polyphemus. Laurence Cummings (conductor) and Martin Parr (director), with the London Handel Orchestra and a stunning line-up of soloists, conjure up an Arcadian world of glades and bowers, embracing the grandeur as well as the intimacy of St John's Smith Square in this imaginative exploration of love, grief and fortitude.
