★★★★★ Audience Feedback for Acis & Galatea

Audience reaction to Acis & Galatea

People: beg, steal or do whatever it takes to catch one of these performances. Very clever modern day production with superb cast!  Jo Rodgers

A superb production. Beautifully sung and played. Contemporary stagings of ancient works aren't to everyone's taste, but this A and G is wonderful. The challenges of staging the repetitions within baroque music are not just overcome; they are woven into the production expertly. They are exploited to delicious comic effect in one of Polyphemus's Act 2 arias, and the chorus and cleverly constructed set ensure that the dramatic pace matches the expert musical performances. It is no mean feat to present an ancient tale in a 3 hundred year old idiom and make it alive and relevant to a modern audience. Bravi!  Paul Glynn

★★★★★ A fabulous performance...just amazing. Real passion . Thanks . Happy Happy Happy me Marie Louise Heffernan

Saw it last week and it was pure magic. Highest praise to Tom Creed (director) and Peter Whelan (conductor) for the concept and period style music. The small chorus ensemble of 5 was so tight and so effective. Principals too were on the money .... though Damon's 3rd aria (sung by Andrew Gavin) was the highlight for me - a talent to watch. What would George Frederick thought? Well it was a sell out so I'd say he's be happy. Well done yet again OTC and congrats on your 10th tribute to the great Handel ! Peadar Rafferty

Fabulous performance Monica Slevin

Loved it! Well done everyone! Paula Dunne

Brilliant show last night in Dundalk. Am listening to my cd now. Well done on all the energy and committment. Peter Whelan was dancing in his conductor's seat.... if that's possible. Brilliant night. Hope you reprise this exact production. Absolutely brilliant John English
