Opera Tickets and Performance Information

Acis and Galatea, by G.F. Handel
October 27-29, 2017

Handel’s frothy, frivolous, fantastically fun serenade comes to life as a circus production, under the big top. This tuneful celebration of life and love is one of the Baroque’s most beloved creations, and this new production is made to invite families, the young, and young at heart – full of laughter, wonder, and unforgettable melodies. Come one, come all, and discover a three-ringed opera no­­t to be missed.  The opera will be performed in English by a wonderfully talented student cast, with chorus and orchestra. Music direction by Bernard McDonald, stage direction and scenic design by Timothy Nelson, and lighting design by Kel Millionie.
