Hawke’s Bay’s renowned Festival Opera creates another platform for Project Prima Volta members with a contemporary take on Handel’s enchanting opera.

Acis & Galatea is a mythical story of love, death and redemption between a shepherd, a sea nymph and a jealous giant. Written in 1717, it was the most performed of all Handel’s operas during his lifetime and remains one of his most successful and popular works to this day.

In this production being created exclusively for the festival, resident artistic director Jose Aparicio gives Handel’s classic tale a modern twist. Set during ball season in the 21st century, teenage angst is artfully depicted with some of most beautiful musical lines Handel has composed.

Filled with soaring melodies and rich emotions, this love story is timeless, and as the treatment illustrates, can be felt most intensely as a teenager.

Performed by 30 rising opera stars from Project Prima Volta and accompanied by a large ensemble drawn from the National Youth Orchestra, this will be a true showcase of youth talent.
