Acis & Galatea is a charming pastoral story about the nymph Galatea,  the shepherd Acis and the giant Polyphemus.  While the story ends sadly (Polyphemus kills Acis in a jealous rage) Galatea transforms her late lover into a fountain, thus immortalizing him.

The principal roles are sung by Nova Scotian professional singers Jennifer Farrell, Colin Frotten, Jon-Paul Decosse and Andrew Pickett with Tara Scott as Musical Director and the Maritime Concert Opera Chorus.

Performances will be Saturday, October 21, 7:30PM, Central United Church, Lunenburg and Sunday, October 22, 3:00PM at Lilian Piercey Concert Hall, Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts, Halifax.

Verdi’s great tragic opera, in concert, with a wonderful cast of Maritime singers.

Gritty and exciting, Rigoletto is packed full of action, emotion and some of the most beautiful and famous operatic numbers ever written, including La donna e mobile, Caro nome and the great Act IV quartet.

As always, Martitime Concert Opera presents the work in the original Italian, but with projected English translations so you don’t miss any of the action!
