I love Acis and Galatea, the story doesn't involve quite as much in a way as Rodelinda and Guilio Cesare do but the music is really beautiful. I found this production to be outstanding, like Glyndebourne's Guilio Cesare and Glyndebourne's Rodelinda and unlike ENO's Ariodante it is how Handel opera should be staged. The production values do look striking, the pastoral setting is very idyllic as it should be like especially. The costumes are generally fine, Acis' is far too workday but Galatea's especially are radiant. There are also some ruins and stuffed animals, but it is done in such a subtle way that you never once feel that it is rammed down your throat.
