Handel: Acis and Galatea

in the original Cannons version

Richard Egarr, director & harpsichord
Andrew Tortise, Acis
Rowan Pierce, Galatea
Ashley Riches, Polyphemus

With heart-rending melody, the humble shepherd Acis woos Galatea, a gracious nymph. But their happy ending is cruelly snatched away by the jealous giant, Polyphemus. Richard Egarr directs one of Handel’s most popular dramatic works, performed here in the intimate original Cannons version.
