Acis and Galatea at the Senate House

last modified Mar 01, 2018 10:30 AM

To celebrate the 300th Anniversary of the very first performance of Acis and Galatea, you are invited to a semi-staged performance in the
historic surroundings of the Senate House. Handel's popular pastoral opera, based on the love story from Ovid's Metamophoses, tells of the
love between the shepherd Acis and sea-nymph Galatea, thwarted by the jealous giant Polyphemus.

Nicholas Mulroy performs the role of Acis alongside directing the Cambridge University Chamber Choir. Galatea is performed by Helena Moore and Louis Marlowe will play the role of Polythemus. The orchestra, performing on the University's superb collection of historical instruments, is led by Margaret Faultless and includes some of the finest players in the University.
