Ahmadi Music Group and Kuwait School of Dance will present Haendel’s pastoral classic, “Acis and Galatea”. With full orchestra, international soloists, the AMG Choir, and the Kuwait School of Dance Senior Performing Company, the production will tell the classic story of the honest shepherd, Acis, who falls desperately in love with the enchanting Galatea, Queen of the Water Nymphs. Galatea’s beauty has also attracted the attention of the fearsome one-eyed monster-giant Polyphemus, and Acis resolves to fight him for Galatea’s hand. How can a simple shepherd fight this monster? Will Galatea choose the simple young Shepherd or the great might and wealth of Polyphemus?
