Genesis Baroque + Fitz-Gibbon, Macfarlane, Dinopoulos: Handel’s “Acis & Galatea”
14 July @ 19:30 - 22:00
One event on 16 July 2022 at 19:30
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!
