George Frideric Handel’s Acis and Galatea, his much-loved pastoral opera, traverses pathos, joy, humour, rage, and tragedy in equal measure.
Genesis Baroque is joined by Karen Fitz-Gibbon (Galatea), Robert Macfarlane (Acis), Nicholas Dinopoulos (Polyphemus), and The Consort of Melbourne, for this contemporary production staged semi-in-the-round in the charming 1920s surrounds of 75 Reid St in Fitzroy North. Directed by Macfarlane, this is a rare Baroque opera treat for Melbourne!
