Handel's Aci, Galatea e Polifemo

Presented by Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale


The gender- and genre-bending operatic event that took New York City by storm in the summer of 2017 now makes landfall in San Francisco. Anthony Tommasini of The New York Times describes it as “an excitingly contemporary production” while The New Yorker praises the production “a smashing success.” Co-produced with National Sawdust, this harrowingly intimate re-imagination stars original cast members Anthony Roth Costanzo as Galatea and Davóne Tines as Polifemo, with Lauren Snouffer joining as Aci.

The original production met with critical acclaim when it premiered in New York City in 2017. Now you can see it with Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Chamber Players at the Opening Night Gala or one of six stunning performances at ODC Theater.

City: San Francisco
