ACIS AND GALATEA. OPEN OPERA UKRAINE.

October 15, 2019

”Acis and Galatea” became the first professional production of GF Handel’s opera in Ukraine. What does it mean? Nobody has ever shown us such a thing.

The independent music project OPEN OPERA UKRAINE has assembled a special “baroque” orchestra, invited German conductor Jörg Halubek to convey Handel’s music as it sounded 300 years ago. And the director Tamara Trunova chose an unexpected reading to demonstrate all the possibilities of modern theatre and present baroque opera in a modern wrapper.

Filmed: October 2019
Location: Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music of Ukraine, Kyiv.
