Handel’s preferred version of Acis and Galatea in the 1730s was not the Cannons version most often heard today, but rather a three-act serenata, performed in both Italian and English, with scenery and costumes, new Italian choruses, and a cast of largely Italian opera singers.

Internationally acclaimed countertenor Lawrence Zazzo explores this rarely-performed work with an outstanding team of singers and instrumentalists from the Royal College of Music in a short Aldeburgh residency, culminating in a 90-minute workshop performance of extracts of this enchanting and fascinating masterpiece.
