Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM EST
In celebration of its 15th year, on December 28 and 29, the national award-winning music organization Crescendo offers a Spanish Baroque comic opera—an art form hailed by the New Yorker as a “treasure” that is rarely experienced even in music centers such as New York and Boston. The opera tells the story of the love between mortal Acis and the sea-nymph Galatea. The singers are accompanied by traditional Baroque instruments and castanets. A small group of ensemble singers act as a traditional opera chorus, commenting in fast-moving and rhythmical responses on the dramatic action.
