Acis and Galatea - excerptsComposer: Handel, George Frideric
Performance date: December 09, 1970

Date composed: 1718


In word and music, Handel presents a delightful evening’s entertainment based on the story of Acis and his lover Galatea, who, unfortunately, is also loved by the giant Polyphemus. The latter destroys Acis but Galatea makes him immortal. Considered to be the pinnacle of pastoral opera in England, selections from both acts can be heard in this recording.
