Acis and Galatea by G.F. Handel
In its original form, G.F. Handel's "Acis & Galatea" tells the tale of a water nymph and a shepherd whose love affair is disrupted by a jealous cyclops. But let's be honest, that' not the easiest story to relate to as a modern audience.

In this adapted version of the same opera, we follow the story of two 19th century women who fall in love and are persecuted for their relationship and their ways of self-expressing.
