wb_Acis&GalateaPosterIn February 2014, Ahmadi Music Group and Kuwait School of Dance presented Haendel’s great pastoral opera, Acis and Galatea. Acis, the brave young shepherd falls in love with the exotic Galatea, queen of the Water Nymphs.  She loves him in return, but her great beauty has also attracted the fearsome one-eyed monster-giant, Polyphemus.

How can Acis hope to fight Polyphemus in order to protect Galatea?  Can Galatea’s band of gentle Water Nymphs stand against the Scary-Fairies who follow Polyphemus?

With full chorus, international soloists, full corps de ballet, and live orchestra, Ahmadi Music Group brought this great classic work to full-colour life on the beautiful stage of the Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah.
