Acis and Galatea


New Dominion Chorale and Orchestra, conducted by Artistic Director Thomas Beveridge, will open its 24th season with a performance of G. F. Handel’s pastoral opera, “Acis and Galatea.” The concert will take place at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, 4915 East Campus Lane, Alexandria, Virginia, on the Alexandria campus of Northern Virginia Community College.

The performance will feature finalists of the 2013 Washington International Competition: soprano Abigail Mitchell (second place winner) in the role of Galatea, and tenor Allan Palacios Chan in the role of Acis. Other soloists are bass Jeffrey Tarr in the role of the monster Polyphemus and tenor Matthew Hill as the shepherd Damon.

“Acis and Galatea” was Handel’s first dramatic work with an English libretto. It is a masque, a genre popular in the Baroque era, which treated mythological and allegorical themes with lavish productions involving singers, instrumentalists, dancers, and actors. The story of Acis and Galatea, adapted from a tale in Ovid’s “Metamorphoses,” tells the story of the love of the shepherd Acis for the water nymph Galatea and the unfortunate complications that arise when the Cyclops Polyphemus wants Galatea for his own. The work was extremely popular in Handel’s day and is considered one of his most imaginative creations. The role of the chorus, in particular, is unusually prominent for a Baroque operatic work.
