Concert Famille / Acis et Galatée


13 April 2025

Sunday 13 April 2025 at 11 am.

How about turning your Sunday family cinema outing into an opera outing? The Philharmonic Orchestra presents concerts designed just for families. Introduce your children to the magical world of opera!

Come and immerse yourself in the idyllic but impossible legend of the love of the nymph Galatea for the young shepherd Acis.
Taken from Ovid's Metamorphoses, this idyll is threatened by the Cyclops Polyphemus, who is also in love with the beautiful Galatea. In a jealous rage, Polyphemus crushes Acis under a rock. Galatea, devastated by the pain, transforms Acis into a stream.

The Ensemble européen Mozaïque and the three singers will perform one of the finest moments of music written by Handel in 1736 in a version never performed since.

A masterpiece of Baroque music, come and listen to one of the most beautiful ‘concentrates’ of the most thrilling and exhilarating arias in a drama bursting with vocal colour in all three tessituras: Soprano, Tenor, Bass-Baritone. These three roles will be performed by three young lyrical talents who are beginning to make a name for themselves on European opera stages, and who come from some of Europe's finest ensembles. What's more, Jean Vitez, a great lady of the theatre, will be the narrator to decode this unprecedented lyrical and musical drama.
