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. Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort & Players are joined by an all-star cast of UK vocal talent for Handel’s beloved setting of John Gay’s tale of love and loss, performed in the intimate original Cannons version.
