Written in 1718 for the Duke of Chandos’ private theater, Acis and Galatea tells the story of the love between the shepherd Acis and the nymph Galatea and how it vexed the cyclops Polyphemus, who also loved Galatea. Despite its modest means, this short English-language masque or opera, with its exquisite rendering of the pastoral world and its flow of inspired melody and characterizations, was one of Handel’s most successful works for stage. And, not surprisingly, it remained the most popular of his works throughout the 18th century.
