8pm | Sunday 9th April
Opera Theatre Company, featuring the Irish Baroque orchestra
Written in 1717, one of Handel’s most treasured works, Acis and Galatea is a high point of baroque repertoire. It tells a pastoral tale of the love between Acis and Galatea. Their joy and passion for each other is established through lyrical arias and joyous ensembles. But things become darker with the arrival of Polyphemus, who is determined to have Galatea for himself. Acis ignores the warnings that love is a fleeting pleasure and ends up facing the wrath of Polyphemus.
Handel’s glorious music – full of emotion, wit and soaring melodies is both elegant and exciting and the enchanting choruses, touching arias, and comic moments in Acis and Galatea will enthral and delight.
Tickets €30 / €27
