The Netherlands Chamber Choir joins forces with the Concertgebouw Orchestra to perform Handel’s Acis and Galatea, once praised as ‘one of the finest pastoral operas ever’. Ovid’s classic myth about a stunningly beautiful nymph, a love-struck shepherd, and a Cyclops green with envy, was set to music by Handel in a pastoral opera that would grow to become his most popular theatrical work.
“an exceptional staging of this classic love story”
Under the direction of the peerless Argentine Baroque specialist Leonardo García Alarcón, this opera can now be heard in a seldom-performed orchestral arrangement by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. With Pierre Audi as director, an exceptional staging of this classic love story is guaranteed.
