"Acis & Galatea“, a shepherd fable of mystical origin, is based on the English translation of its tradition in the 13th book of Ovid’s "metamorphosis" of John Dryden. With its composition the libretto team of John Gay, Alexander Pope and John Dryden, Handel gave not only the art work to his first English stage music, but to his most successful work during his lifetime. 

Today the unbroken fascination of "Acis & Galatea“ is based on the strength of the musical invention, with which Handel followed the dramatic consistency of the libretto; on the unity and closeness in all, although as on the varied elaboration of his parts. 

One wonderful melody rushes after the next. Under the direction of Martin Haselböck acts an artistic team, which makes the fantasy abundance of Handel’s audibly, noticeable and easy to experience in an inimitable way.
