Acis and the sea-nymph Galatea are deeply in love, but the violently jealous cyclops Polyphemus murders Acis. Galatea’s true devotion turns Acis into an immortal river spirit. This is the Italian precursor to Handel's beloved English oratorio Acis and Galatea.
Black Box Baroque and Albany Consort presents our fourth show, following our thrilling Handel trilogy based on Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso. This dramatic cantata features daring, experimental sound colors from early in Handel’s output (1708), and extraordinary vocal writing for bass-baritone, pants-role soprano, and mezzo-soprano.
See you there!
