Handel’s Acis & Galatea is a pastoral opera and a tale of love, tragedy and liberation, with the eternal love between mortal shepherd Acis and goddess Galatea doomed by the jealous cyclops Polyphemus. Staying true to the premiere in 1718, The Sixteen will use a small selection of singers and instrumentalists in this intimate concert performance.
“Christophers uses stylish Handelians and ‘consort’ singers who blend to perfection in this intimate ‘chamber’ performance.” (The Sunday Times)
Concert performance featuring five singers and nine instrumentalists.
