Romance and heartbreak in the Guinness Storehouse

When it was premiered in the 1700′s Handel’s Acis & Galatea was a turning point in the Masque genre bringing the light musical interlude form closer to opera.

The Storehouse was an unusual setting for the opera but Opera Theatre Company are known for their site specific work and made good use of the natural acoustics of the atrium space.
