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 from The Sixteen in this intimate concert performance.

Harry Christophers – conductor

‘Christophers uses stylish Handelians and “consort” singers who blend to perfection in this intimate “chamber” performance.’ The Sunday Times
