Pre-concert lecture one hour before each opera

To close the 2019-2020 season, Opera McGill joins forces with the McGill Baroque Orchestra and Cappella Antica to perform Handel’s quintessential pastoral opera, Acis and Galatea. Patrick Hansen’s new production whisks the story of the nymph, the shepherd, and the cyclops away to 1950s Italy, where celebrity, cinematic fantasy, and real life intertwine. Brimful of gorgeous melodies and scattered throughout with little winks and nudges, Acis and Galatea remains as irresistible in our day as in Handel’s.

The performances on March 28 and 29 will be webcast.

Following the recommendations of the Government of Quebec and with the safety of our students, staff, faculty, visiting guests, and dedicated audience in mind, please note that effective immediately, all public performances have been cancelled for the rest of the 2019-20 season in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. Tickets purchased to affected events will be given full refunds. For up to date information, please monitor McGill University’s coronavirus webpage.
