Saturday 5th August - Handel's Acis and Galatea 

Shepherds and nymphs enjoy the pleasure of nature. Galatea, a semi-divine nymph, is in love with the shepherd Acis, and tries to hush the birds that ignite her passion for him. Acis's close friend, the shepherd Damon, provides counsel to the lovers as they pursue each other. Acis and Galatea is conducted by Peter Whelan and performed by the dazzling Irish Baroque Orchestra and features tenor Eamonn Mulhall and soprano Susanna Fairbairn as the thwarted lovers with bass baritone Edward Grint as Polyphemus and tenor Andrew Gavin as Damon.
