Acis and Galatea in Broadway ACIS AND GALATEA
Madison Opera
Charming and deceptively sweet, this two-hour English pastorale tells of a demigod in love with a mortal— and what happens when another demigod gets jealous. Using a libretto by John Gay, composer of The Beggar's Opera, Handel wove some of his most beautiful melodies into the story of Galatea, her beloved Acis, and the sinister Polyphemus. Join Madison Opera for our first-ever Handel opera, in a new production in the intimate Playhouse at Overture Center— the perfect venue for an opera originally performed on the terrace of the Earl of Carnavon's home (now the setting for the critically-acclaimed TV series Downton Abbey).
