Acis and Galatea at Malibran Theatre
October 26, 2011 - October 30, 2011
This “serenata” type opera originally by Georg Friedrich Handel is a pinnacle of pastoral opera in England. It was written as a courtly entertainment discussing the simplicities of country life but with a lot of wit and self-parody. This musical work was Handel’s most popular dramatic work with the first act being described as both elegant and sensual, while the final act took on a a more melancholy and lamenting tone.
