UCLA Choral Studies Presents Handel’s “Acis and Galatea”

classical
St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church View Program

The UCLA Chamber Singers, UCLA Opera Theater, and Tesserae Baroque Orchestra will present two performances of Handel's masterpiece Acis and Galatea. Described as a masque, a pastoral, and a "little opera" by the composer himself, Acis and Galatea has been experienced by every generation since its premiere in 1718. Written as a courtly entertainment about the simplicity of rural life, Acis and Galatea contains some of Handel's most beautiful music composed for solo voices and chorus.

This event is made possible by a generous gift from Judith Smith, as well as the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2022 - 23 Dobrow Series.

UCLA, the School of Music, and Los Angeles County strongly recommend indoor masking.

While masking is not mandatory, it is encouraged as a way of helping to protect our community.
